Directed by Sean Foley and produced by Matthew Churchill Productions.
Before this production commences, Sean Foley will be directing I Can’t Sing!, the musical based on The X Factor, at the London Palladium.
Around The World In Eighty Days audiences will experience a multi-media show featuring a 360 degree dome the size of ten IMAX screens. The show will also include a hot air balloon flying above the audience and a 20 foot high steam-powered elephant.
Join the eccentric Englishman Phileas Fogg and his trusty servant Passepartout as they race by boat, train, hot air balloon and elephant in a bid to get around the world in eighty days. Will the mountains, jungles and oceans of our wondrous planet defeat them? Will Fogg win his wager or become a ruined man? And exactly where does love figure in this incredible adventure? Most importantly, will Passepartout ever be able to boil Fogg’s egg for exactly 204 seconds?!
