New Harmony Theatre's 2017 Season

Around the World in 80 Days
Adapted by Mark Brown
From the novel by Jules Verne
June 23, 2017 - July 2, 2017

A family-friendly comedy!

Jules Verne's 19th century classic is presented with the comic abandon of five gifted and comic improvisational actors. A romping family entertainment, the play follows the unflappable Phileas Fogg, an intrepid and somewhat mysterious 19th century gentleman, as he pursues the challenge of traveling all the way around the world in under 80 days, a feat of travel that his fellow club members wager him is impossible.

Third grader Tina Denmark has Broadway ambitions, but you'll find she's no Shirley Temple when your back is turned! This musical parody of 1950's movies offers outrageous humor in place of the suspense and melodrama we found in the films it recalls. Movie lovers will enjoy spotting the references to the old films we used to watch late at night on our 19 inch black and white sets. Be aware that this one leans a little toward the "13" in PG - 13, but it's all in good fun.

Florence Foster Jenkins was an opera singer of the 1930's and 40's who enjoyed the backing of her own money to finance her public performances. With little connection to reality and even less to pitch, she was determined to present herself as a gifted performing artist to an astounded public. She met their derision with supreme confidence, and in the end left us all to ask whether art resides in the performance itself or the soul of the artist. Both funny and touching, Florence is a rare character to cheer for.
