Around the World in 80 Days

By Mark Brown

Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Unabashedly slapstick! Hold onto your seats for the original amazing race! Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant as they race to beat the clock! Phileas Fogg has agreed to an outrageous wager that puts his fortune and his life at risk. With his resourceful servant Passepartout, Fogg sets out to circle the globe in an unheard-of 80 days. But his every step is dogged by a detective who thinks he's a robber on the run. Danger, romance, and comic surprises abound in this whirlwind of a show

Currently we have one scheduled performance of the show on Friday, May 13 at the River Arts Center in Prairie du Sac. We are in negotiations for some other venues at future times and this will be determined based on cast availability.

The show has a small cast and one actor can play multiple characters. We are looking for either an actor to play Passepartout and his parts or an actor that plays multiple small parts. We have an actor ready to go for one of these roles, but I have him on hold to see who is the best fit.

Most rehearsals will be in Baraboo, but we might be able to have some rehearsals closer to Madison to make it easier for actors not from Baraboo to participate.

As some of the actors are in other shows at the moment, we would be looking at rehearsals probably on weekends--sometime on Saturday and probably Sunday noon-afternoon. Weeknights up for consideration would be Tuesday and/or Thursday. We will not have a great many rehearsals, but the rehearsals, so actors will be expected to come to rehearsal prepared in order to make the most of the time.

There will be financial compensation and possibly a bonus based on the success of ticket sales and the expenses of the show.

If you are interested, please use the contact information below and we will send you a link to the first pages of the script for you to look over. Please reply by March 1, but feel welcome to reply later for other shows in the season.

We are also looking to precast for the rest of our season including some interactive murder mysteries and dinner theaters.

Thanks for your time and consideration.
