It's not the destination, it's the journey. Emerald Coast Theatre Company continues its 6th season by staging a new production of Mark Brown’s adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic tale “Around the World in 80 Days,” March 28-April 7.
The performance runs Thursday, March 28 (opening night) through Sunday, April 7 and will be staged at ECTC’s performance space located at 560 Grand Boulevard (upstairs) in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, located in Miramar Beach, Florida.
Jules Verne's classic tale springs to life in this clever, fast-paced comedy for the whole family. Proper gentleman Phileas Fogg strikes a wager and sets off on a race that puts his fortune and life at risk. With his faithful servant at his side, he has just 80 days to circle the globe — an inconceivable feat in the year 1872. Fierce natives, furious typhoons, runaway trains, a damsel in distress and a dogged detective threaten to delay him at every step in this delightful, whirlwind odyssey that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to unexpected end.
“This adaptation squeezes every bit of fun and funny from the classic novel,” said ECTC producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher. “Come experience literature coming to life on stage. Bring the kids and the grandparents, this show will delight every generation. Whether by train, boat, or elephant, get to Grand Boulevard for this show.”
