GRAB YOUR PASSPORT AND HEAD FOR LEEDS PLAYHOUSE
This Easter, the people of Leeds will be grabbing their passports as Leeds Playhouse whisks them away on a fun-filled, globetrotting adventure in a stage adaptation of Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days.
Audiences will be transported back to the 19th century as the infamous Phileas Fogg embarks upon an extraordinary journey across four continents, causing mayhem along the way in this exhilarating production, packed with surprises, props, and fabulous laughs.
This stage adaptation will be directed by Leeds Playhouse’s award-winning Director of Creative Engagement Alex Ferris and will feature new original music by award-winning musician Dom Coyote.
Around the World in 80 Days will feature four of Leeds Playhouse’s Ensemble company: Robert Pickavance, Dan Parr, Joe Alessi and Darren Kuppan.
Following its run at Leeds Playhouse, the production will tour to eight community partner areas within the Leeds City Region. This marks the fifth year Leeds Playhouse has worked within these specific community partner areas, sharing productions and delivering workshops in community settings.
Around the World in 80 Days plays in Leeds Playhouse’s Pop-Up theatre, in association with SOYO Leeds, from 9 – 28 April
