The next reading and auditions are for 'Around the World in 80 Days' directed by Gemma Dodds


The fabulously wealthy Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg wagers his life's fortune that he can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days. Along with his hapless valet, Passeportout, he sets out on a dazzling escapade that takes him from the misty alleys of London to the subcontinent and on to the Wild West as they race against the clock on a dizzying succession of trains, steamers, wind-propelled sleighs and elephants. Packing in more than 50 unforgettable characters, this production is going to achieve this with just five actors!

Cast List
Phileas Fogg: - age 40ish M
Inspector Fix plus ensemble: - age 30-40s M/F
Passeportout: - age 20s – 40s M/F (possibility of some physicality, but not overly important)
Mrs Aouda: - age mid 20s to 40s F
Mr Naidu plus ensemble: - age 20s to 50s F
I will also be looking for Youth Theatre members or younger people to portray a circus scene. The circus scene will involve some acrobatics, so the more flexible you are the better. There may also be the opportunity for older Youth Theatre members to portray extras in some scenes, you do not have to be a member of Youth Theatre to be involved in this performance. 

If you are interested in any of the roles and wish to know more then please email Gemma at
