Performance comes to the end of its journey

June 28, 2013 by  

The currently running ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ production comes to an end this weekend, and is a Mark Brown adaptation of the novel by Jules Vern and has been directed by Bryan Schmidt.

In the play, spectators will enjoy raging elephants, roaring typhoons, and runaway trains during a truly amazing race. Poster printing, brochure printing, and postcard printing may have been used to spread the word about this imaginative production to people in this community.

Five actors will take to the stage to portray some 39 characters who are all competing in a race to see who can circumnavigate the globe in the 80-day deadline, covering all seven individual continents and taking in a whirlwind of mystery and mystique. Phileas Fogg and his loyal manservant race against the clock to ensure they make it and, along the way, suffer some misfortunes and adventures that will keep audience members on their edge of their seats, with more than a few moments of comedy and suspense thrown in to add to the experience.

Ticket prices vary between $12 and $15 per person. Around the World in 80 Days gives its final performance in the area tomorrow, June 29, starting at 7:30 pm at the Magenta Theatre located at 606 Main Street in Vancouver, Washington, a few minutes from Portland, Oregon.
