Following a very successful night at The 2015 Kelsey Awards, Maurer Productions OnStage has announced their cast for Around the World in 80 Days, which is set to open on October 9th.
Around the World in 80 Days, which is being directed by John M. Maurer, is a comedy/adventure for the entire family. Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Unabashedly slapstick! Hold onto your seats for the original amazing race! Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant 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. But his every step is dogged by a detective who thinks he’s a robber on the run. Danger, romance, and comic surprises abound in this whirlwind of a show as five actors portraying 40 characters traverse seven continents in Mark Brown’s new adaptation of one of the great adventures of all time.
