SYNOPSIS

The Award-winning production team of MPOnStage brings you a Comedy/Adventure for the whole family. Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Unabashed slapstick! Hold onto your seats for the original amazing race!

Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant Passepartout as they race to beat the clock! Phileas Fogg has agreed to an outrageous wager that puts his fortune and his life at risk. With his resourceful servant Passepartout, Fogg sets out to circle the globe in an unheard of 80 days.
