A rip-roaring production of the Jules Verne classic ‘Around The World In 80 Days’ will be staged at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Horncastle.

The Oxfordshire Theatre Company and Chipping Norton Theatre are bringing the brand new production to QEGS next Thursday (November 13).

They promise the audience will be ‘crying with laughter’ as they travel the world.

It is billed as a joyfully frenetic whirlwind of a show, full of daft Victorian invention, daring deeds and downright silliness.

Just three actors will portray a cast of thousands in a madcap adaptation of the globetrotting classic, bringing to life sea storms, police chases and even elephant rides.

A quirky, ingenious set will help deliver the sounds, sights and even smells of world travel. The show is perfect for adults, families and children over seven years.

The performance will start at 7pm and tickets (£8/£4 concessions) are available from the school office, or on the door.
