About 80 Days
Take a journey around the world with Live Oak Theatre as it presents an original musical adaptation of Jules Verne’s compelling story of Phileas Fogg’s race against time. Join us for a global adventure via steam and sail as we visit London, India, Hong Kong, Japan and the American west.
The show is a collaboration between artistic director Randi Olsen, Ron Dykes, Kyle Marra, Chris Rees and several members of the Live Oak Theatre Company. It is co-directed by Ms. Olsen who has gathered an incredible cast of 60 actors to tell the story – many of them appearing as multiple characters in several countries along the way.
Also directing is Live Oak Theatre’s Greg Mys, who recently played the role of Chef Louis in the Little Mermaid. Phileas Fogg, played by Kyle Marra, and his faithful servant Passepartout (Terry Edwards) will meet many unforgettable characters along the way including an enchanting princess from India (Katie Moore and Cherilyn Staley), an unscrupulous Detective Fix from Scotland Yard (Chris Rees), a British General (Eric Kessel), a gaggle of Cherry Blossom Girls, Bombay dancers, conniving politicians and an elephant. Rounding out the cast are Hal Hester, Kyle Staley, Kevan Richards, and Gary Benefield as gentlemen of London’s Reform Club, who originate the 80-day wager and anxiously track Fogg’s progress.
Will Phileas Fogg make it around the world by his 80-day deadline?
