Around The World In 80 Days Poster

Around The World in 80 Days is adapted by Toby Hulse, based on the novel by Jules Verne and directed by Award-winning director Terence O’Connell.

Presented by SEC LIVE

Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Unabashedly slapstick! Hold onto your seats for the original amazing race! Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant Passepartout as they set out to win an outrageous wager by circling the globe in an unheard-of 80 days. Danger, romance, and comic surprises abound in this whirlwind of a show as three actors portraying 39 characters traverse seven continents in one of the great adventures of all time!

“What a delight this is.” THE GUARDIAN “An inventive romp… Something for everyone; though the characters may not yet have the ability to fly, this production certainly does.” THE STAGE

The bet is on! Travel AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS in this thrilling new production for all audiences - which takes you from London to Bombay, Yokohama to San Francisco, through typhoons, out-of-control trains and into the deepest reaches of your imagination as it’s all done with just three actors playing a multitude of roles. Phileas Fogg says he can race from London to London in a mere 80 days, but the pressure is on and time is running out. At his side, a band of quirky adventurers. At their heels, a relentless Scotland Yard detective. At stake, surviving utterly fantastic adventures across India, China, Japan and America - beating the clock - and winning the bet. This is no movie…this is theatre at its most magical and transporting!

MUSICAL THEATRE ROYALTY JOIN THE CAST

We’re excited to announce that joining Ian Stenlake will be Sharon Millerchip and Wayne Scott Kermond.

IAN STENLAKE’s theatre work has included productions by some of Australia’s most respected companies including Griffith Theatre Company and Darlinghurst Theatre Company. His musical theatre career highlights have included Guys & Dolls, Oklahoma, Cabaret, Georgy Girl, and many others. You may also remember him from Channel 9’s Sea Patrol.

Ian is a two-time Green Room Award winner for the Best Male Actor in a Musical for They’re Playing Our Song and Oklahoma!. He also received Green Room Award nominations for Eureka and Cabaret, and a Helpmann Award nomination for Oklahoma!.

SHARON MILLERCHIP is recognised as one of Australia’s leading performers; she holds a swag of awards, including three prestigious Helpmanns. She has starred in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies, the spectacular sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Sweet Charity (Helpmann nomination), Pippin (Helpmann nomination) Satango (Sydney Dance Award) and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (Mo Award).

Sharon is one of the few actresses worldwide to have played the roles of both Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart in Chicago, receiving Helpmann Awards for both roles, as well as the Sydney Theatre Critics’ Award for her star turn as Roxie Hart. Other leading roles include Columbia in Rocky Horror Show (Helpmann Award), Sonia Walsk in They’re Playing Our Song and Demeter in Cats.

WAYNE SCOTT KERMOND is the fourth generation of show biz Kermonds and made his stage debut at the ripe old age of eleven - and he hasn’t stopped since!

Featured musical theatre roles include The Wizard of Oz in Wicked, Wilbur Turnblad in Hairspray, Mike in A Chorus Line, Arab in IMG’s West Side Story, the Australian production of Chicago, the Sydney season of MTC’s Urinetown, playing Hot Blades Harry.

Wayne is perhaps best remembered for his performance as Cosmo Brown in Singin’ in the Rain, receiving standing ovations for his show-stopping number ‘Make ‘em Laugh’ where he defied gravity by running up the wall!

Producer Helen Ellis comments, “We are delighted to be producing the Australian premiere of this new adaptation of a classic story told in a completely unexpected way. Audiences are going to be taken on an extraordinary trip around the globe without ever leaving the theatre.”

AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS has assembled a winning and award worthy design team. The set design is by Merinda Backway. The costume design is by Lucy Wilkins. The sound design is by David Ellis. The lighting design is by Jason Bovaird.
