Event Description

Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre is inviting audiences to rediscover a sense of discovery and adventure with Toby Hulse’s adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days! Join Phileas Fogg as he races from continent to continent after wagering an incredible sum of money that he can travel around the world in 80 days. Based on a novel written by Jules Verne in 1872, Around the World in 80 Days! explores Victorian era’s fascination with innovations that opened a world of possibilities to travelers and adventurers.

Directed by Shaw Festival veteran Sanjay Talwar, this family-friendly adaptation, showcases the human desire for adventure, and explores the fun and magic of theatre. The cast is made up of three actors who, in addition to main parts, play a vast range of characters from all over the globe. Blue Bridge favourite Trevor Hinton as Phileas Fogg will be joined by newcomers Tamara McCarthy as Passepartout and Pedro Siqueira as Fix of the Yard.

“We’re going to explore how to make the various characters different, but it really is kind of the same body, the same energy. And there’s something about expanding and shrinking the globe at the same time, just in terms of perspective, that I think is fun - and valuable, in terms of today’s world,” adds Talwar.

Alongside Talwar, with set design by Hans Saefkow, costume design by Yi Misty Buxton, lighting design by Rebekah Johnson and sound design by Carl Keys, this show’s creative team will use the magic of theatre to transport audiences around the globe. “

We’re going to focus on the transformational aspect of theatre. Wholly engaging your imagination is something that we do naturally as kids,” states Sanjay Talwar, the show’s Director. “But we sometimes forget that we can still engage with our imagination as adults. If we can do that within the structure of telling a more complicated story than you would tell, maybe, a six-year-old, then it’s super fun. Then, I think, generations of people can engage with each other while relating to the story, whether it’s grandparents and grandchildren or anyone in between.”
