Follow Phileas Fogg and his adorable madcap valet, Passepartout, as they race against time to circumnavigate the world in just 80 days. With his entire fortune at stake, Phileas risks life and limb to win his bet against his arch nemesis, Captain Fix, who will stop at nothing to thwart Fogg in his adventures.

This Summer, The Union Theatre invites you to jump in a hot air balloon and see the furthest continents and spectacles of the world without leaving the comforts of Southwark and embrace a classic tale, penned by acclaimed French Novelist, Jules Verne.

'Around the World in 80 Days' promises to be a fun filled musical comedy that will entertain the entire family. Filled with catchy melodies, dastardly villains, high-kicking dance routines, performing elephants, nizam cannibals and dancing dragons, this is one show you don't want to miss...

Will Phileas make it before the time runs out?
