The play, adapted from the Jules Verne book by local playwright Eileen Ryan, tells the story of Phileas Fogg and his crazy bet to travel around the world in 80 days. Accompanied by his hot-blooded French manservant, Fogg must overcome storms, kidnapping, natural disasters, Sioux attacks and Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard, to win his extraordinary wager. “This will be fast paced and exciting,” says director David Cumming, “girdling the world, crossing continents, travelling by train, steamship, sailing boat, sledge and even elephant.”
The first auditions for Harleston Players’ January 2018 show ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ will take place on Tuesday 26 September at Jays Green, Harleston.
The play, adapted from the Jules Verne book by local playwright Eileen Ryan, tells the story of Phileas Fogg and his crazy bet to travel around the world in just 80 days.
Breaking the orderly routine of his daily life, the coolheaded Englishman and his hot-blooded French manservant Passepartout immediately set off for Dover. They must overcome storms, kidnappings, natural disasters, Sioux attacks and Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard – who believes Fogg has robbed the Bank of England – to win this extraordinary wager. In a race against time, Phileas Fogg can’t afford to lose his cool.
David Cumming, the director, said, “This will be a fast paced, exciting show, girdling the world, crossing continents, travelling by train, steamship, sailing boat, sledge and even elephant. If you are keen to be involved in this show, there is a large selection of parts so do come along to the auditions.”

Our next production will be ‘Fallen Angels’ by Noel Coward, to be directed by Dawn Briggs. Auditions take place on Monday 5th and Thursday 8th June from 7.30 – 10pm at Jays Green Community Centre, Harleston – all welcome!
There are roles for 3 males and 3 females – entailing ‘strenuous physical theatre’, according to our producer! It’s a comedy but not a farce. Performances in October. Rehearsals will be on Monday and Thursday evenings – start date to be confirmed soon.
Publishers, Samuel French, write of the play: ‘Best friends now happily married to others, Julia and Jane both once counted the dashing Frenchman Maurice as their lover. Guess who’s back in town and requesting the pleasure of the ladies’ company? Coward at his inimitable best, the story is a champagne cocktail of wit and charm.’
