Oxfordshire Theatre Company and Chipping Norton Theatre present
 
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!
 
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.
 
Perfect for adults, families and children over 7 years
 
“ A rollicking piece of family theatre.” The Stage
