Around the World in 80 Days
Around the World in 80 Days whisks the bookmark from Jules Verne’s classic novel for a madcap journey without vaccinations or passports, teleporting audiences to the late 19th century by way of the stage. Eccentric aristocrat Phileas Fogg has placed a bet: in 80 days, he must circle the globe by balloon, train, steamboat, and hand-cranked elephant. At stake? Both his pride and his considerable fortune.
In Mark Brown’s lively, family-friendly adaptation, five accomplished performers take on the dirigible-sized challenge of portraying the 39 characters that populate Verne’s Victorian romp. Director Rachel Klein’s production, sophisticated enough to please the harshest child critics, but zany enough to appease hyperactive parents, creates a breathtaking steampunk world.
Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre
From June to November each year, a cast of actors, directors, and designers descends upon Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre to produce eight celebrated shows, many along the lines of To Kill A Mockingbird and The Music Man. The cozy, unassuming theater has been welcoming performers for more than 50 years, staging renowned productions and Broadway plays to the delight of theater fans and comforters that aspire to be stage curtains.
