Bringing the best entertainment

Around the World in 80 Days - "A rollicking piece of family theatre". The Stage

Rural Touring favourites Oxfordshire Theatre Company team up with acclaimed producing venue Chipping Norton Theatre to provide top-notch, affordable theatrical entertainment.

The Play:
A joyfully frenetic whirlwind of a show, full of daft Victorian invention, daring deeds and downright silliness. Three actors portray a cast of thousands in this madcap adaptation of Jules Verne’s globetrotting classic, bringing to life sea storms, police chases and even elephant rides!

This brand new production brings the sounds, the smells and even the tastes of a monumental circumnavigation to a village hall near you. The sheer spirit of theatrical imagination combines with the great age of industrial invention to produce a piece of theatre that will have you crying with laughter as you travel the world.

Perfect for adults, families and children over 7 years


The Production:
With a production style that incorporates elements of The 39 Steps, classic farces, theatrical storytelling, Heath-Robinson inventiveness and the madcap silliness of The Reduced Shakespeare Company, the joy is watching three extraordinary performers deliver a huge cast of characters that span the globe. A quirky, ingenious set channels the spirit of Victorian invention to deliver the sounds, sights and even smells of world travel.
