and standing ovations! - the only family trip you should take this summer!


Whatever you’ve got planned for your holidays this year, it can’t possibly compare to the trip we’re going to take you on with our fantastic summer show AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS!

The story of the eccentric Phileas Fogg, who wagers his life’s fortune that he can circumnavigate the globe in just eighty days with his travelling companion Passepartout has been made famous by book and by film – and now it hits the stage!

‘How can you possibly do justice to those wonderful globe-trotting adventures on stage? … Well, someone who is not afraid of a mighty challenge is the New Vic’s artistic director Theresa Heskins. She leapt at the chance to tackle it and pulls it off MAGNIFICENTLY…

More than 100 characters, played by just eight actors….ingenious representations of six trains, six boats, four fights, two dances, one snow storm and a circus act. Oh, and an elephant. TOP CLASS ENTERTAINMENT from a MARVELLOUS cast and gifted creative team’  The Stage

We’re delighted that this amazing production, which started life at the New Vic Theatre, is returning, and we’ll be welcoming it to the Royal Exchange Theatre from 17 July – 16 August. BOOK TICKETS MORE INFORMATION
