Around the World in 80 Days

The 2017 S. Anselm's Senior Play was the epic adventure of Phileas Fogg and his stalwart valet, Passepartout.

This year's production was of epic proportions for S. Anselm's with the script being adapted from Jule's Verne's 1873 novel 'Around the World in 80 Days' by our Head of English, Mr James Carr and the original and beautiful music being composed by current parent, Mr Mark Chichester-Clark.

With a cast spanning Years 6 to 8, sets and scenery for each of Fogg's destinations as well as train carriages and steamboats along the way and props and costumes to match, it was a mamouth undertaking but hugely rewarding for all involved.  Parents and families filled the Hargreaves Hall on both nights of the production (4th & 5th July) and were an extremely appreciative.
