The latest theatre, dance and performance news


TAKE A THRILLING JOURNEY AROUND THE WORLD IN UNDER TWO AND A HALF HOURS You may have read the original novel or enjoyed the popular TV cartoon – but now it’s time to see Jules Verne’s Around The World in 80 Days brilliantly recreated for the stage.
Having wowed audiences in the West End and Manchester, London’s New Vic production makes a stop at Cardiff’s New Theatre in its tour of the UK. Fast-paced and funny, it’s the epic tale of Phileas Fogg who bets his life’s fortune that he can travel around the globe in just 80 days.
A cast of 8 multi-talented actors get to play over 125 characters in what is an imaginative and physically inventive show which takes audiences on the voyage from the misty alleys of Victorian London to the exotic subcontinent and the Wild West in a glorious race against the clock. The high-spirited escapade includes six trains, five boats, four fights, three dances, two circus acts and an elephant!
The UK tour of Around The World in 80 Days reunites original cast members Andrew Pollard as the mysterious and fabulously wealthy Phileas Fogg, Michael Hugo as his loyal valet Passepartout, Dennis Herdman as Inspector Fix and Pushpinder Chandi as Mr Naidu. They are joined by Matthew Ganley as Colonel Proctor, Simi Egbejumi-David as Captain Speedy, Joey Parsad as Miss Singh and Kirsten Forster as Mrs Aouda.
Passports aren’t required for Around The World in 80 Days – but do pick up your tickets for the show which runs from Tuesday 19 – Saturday 24 September 2017. For full details and to book tickets, please visit or call the Box Office on 029 2087 8889.
