When I was asked if I’d like to go and see Jules Verne’s Around the world in 80 days and take just under two and a half hours at New Theatre Cardiff of course I said Yes!
As my regular readers will know up until last year I’d never been to the theatre I’m starting to become a little bit of a pro and look forward to it. Possibly because for me they are all new stories! Around the world in 80 days isn’t going to be any different!
I know the story is a classic 1872 novel by the French writer Jules Verne and that Philes Fogg is an inventor living in England, he bets his life’s fortunes that he can travel the globe in just 80 days, after another inventor challenges him to the trip. He sets off with passepartout on a big adventure.
We’ll travel the world with a cast of 8 who’ll take on 125 characters starting from the club in Victorian London to the Wild West and the exotic subcontinent!
Andrew Pollard who plays Phileas Fogg. He will join Michael Hugo as his loyal manservant Passepartout , Dennis Herdsman as inspector Fix,Pushpinder Chandi as MrNaidu. Matthew Ganley Colonel Proctor, Simi Egbejumi -David as Captain speedy, Joey Parsad as Miss Singh and KirstenForster as Mrs Aouda.
The cast between them have an extensive list of theatre credits and television including Emmerdale, spooks, casualty, shameless and Hollyoaks.
