Join us for our middle school performance of 'Around the World in 80 Days'. Shows will be held in the Lake Braddock Recital Hall on Thursday, May 16, Friday, May 17, and Saturday, May 18. All shows will take place at 7:00 p.m. 

This is the well-loved story of Phileas Fogg, who bets his friends that he can go around the world in 80 days (that's before airplanes). His fiancée, Amanda, thinks he is running from her, so she follows. Scotland Yard thinks he has robbed a bank, so Inspector Fix follows, too. They land in Egypt, where Amanda is nearly sold as a harem slave; in Malaya, where headhunters threaten; in Denver, where they meet Mark Twain; and across the ocean in a rickety steamship that they have to burn to keep the boiler boiling. It's a mad mix-up of narrow escapes, wild escapades, and a lesson in literature all rolled into one.
