While we might not jetting off anywhere too exotic this summer, we can still travel the world with York Theatre Royal by heading along to their 2021 summer show. And after the success of the Travelling Pantomime, the theatre will be once again taking to the road and bringing the globe to various venues around York.
Join York Theatre Royal’s raggle-taggle band of travelling circus performers as they embark on their most daring feat yet: to perform the story of Phileas Fogg and his faithful companion Passepartout as they set off on their race around the world. But will the performers be able to recreate every country, character and mode of transport in the book? Will they all agree on what story should be told? Will this madcap adventure reach its final destination in one piece? If it does, will they all still be friends? And just who is Nellie Bly…? This irresistible around-the-world romp, packed to bursting with fun and frivolity, is the perfect holiday substitute! See it outside or at the theatre; suitable for children aged 7+.
This new and exciting adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days will be on tour between August 6th and 21st 2021. It will take place outside on playing fields at Carr Junior School (6-8 August), Archbishop Holgate School (14-16 August) and Joseph Rowntree School (18-21 August), and then indoors at York Theatre Royal from 25-28 August 2021.
