Rip-Roaring Fun for Everyone


3 – 27 August, Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne

Come on a whistle-stop tour around the world, without even leaving your seat in the imaginative and creative re-telling of the Jules Verne classic, Around the World in 80 Days, at the Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne this summer from 3 to 27 August.

A talented team of actors will recreate a cast of a hundred and four characters in this rip-roaring adventure which will transport you this summer Around the World in 80 Days! A perfect summer treat for all ages this theatrical event is not to be missed.

Buckle up as six trains, six boats, four fights, two dances, one sleigh ride, a storm, a circus, a balloon, and an elephant will take to the Devonshire Park stage in this uproarious and exciting re-telling of the Jules Verne’s classic.

They said it was ridiculous, the said it couldn’t be done but Phileas Fogg is fabulously determined as he wagers his whole fortune on the seemingly impossible. Surely no one could circumnavigate the world in just 80 days?!

Join Fogg and his loyal valet Passepartout as they journey from London to Brindisi, Bombay, Yokohama, and even the Wild West as this beloved tale is hilariously brought to life as never before.

This production is being produced especially for Eastbourne from the team responsible for 39 Steps, Return to the Forbidden Planet, One Man Two Guvnors and Eastbourne’s legendary pantomimes.

Theatre Director and show Director Chris Jordan said, “We’re delighted to be presenting this feel-good adventure, it’s the perfect production for all ages. We wanted to fill the Devonshire Park with something really memorable this summer and this show is the perfect escape for a couple of hours!”
