Around the World in 80 Minutes (2005)

Around the World in 80 Minutes (2005)

LANGUAGE:English with some French

Performed in English with some simple French, Around The World In 80 Minutes, was a wonderful introduction to the French language and Francophone countries around the world. First performed in 2005, it was toured again in 2007 to delighted audiences everywhere.

Whizzing around the globe, the Sans Frontières detective agency took the audience on an action packed adventure. It was a race against time through jungles, deserts and ice palaces as they chased their archenemy - the dastardly Fantôme Cycliste. Joining in with the songs and experiencing a wealth of cultures, the audience went on a fun-filled journey featuring original music, interactive video and some simple French. Bon Voyage!

The show was suitable for primary school children aged 7-11, their teachers, families and friends. A free education pack was available to teachers and group bookers.
