    Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre is inviting audiences to rediscover a sense of discovery and
    adventure with Toby Hulse’s adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days! Join Phileas Fogg as
    he races from continent to continent after wagering an incredible sum of money that he can
    travel around the world in 80 days. Based on a novel written by Jules Verne in 1872, Around the
    World in 80 Days! explores Victorian era’s fascination with innovations that opened a world of
    possibilities to travelers and adventurers.
    Directed by Shaw Festival veteran Sanjay Talwar, this family-friendly adaptation, showcases the
    human desire for adventure, and explores the fun and magic of theatre. The cast is made up of
    three actors who, in addition to main parts, play a vast range of characters from all over the
    globe. Blue Bridge favourite Trevor Hinton as Phileas Fogg will be joined by newcomers Tamara
    McCarthy as Passepartout and Pedro Siqueira as Fix of the Yard.
    “We’re going to explore how to make the various characters different, but it really is kind of the
    same body, the same energy. And there’s something about expanding and shrinking the globe
    at the same time, just in terms of perspective, that I think is fun - and valuable, in terms of
    today’s world,” adds Talwar.
    Alongside Talwar, with set design by Hans Saefkow, costume design by Yi Misty Buxton,
    lighting design by Rebekah Johnson and sound design by Carl Keys, this show’s creative team
    will use the magic of theatre to transport audiences around the globe.
    “We’re going to focus on the transformational aspect of theatre. Wholly engaging your
    imagination is something that we do naturally as kids,” states Sanjay Talwar, the show’s
    Director. “But we sometimes forget that we can still engage with our imagination as adults. If we
    can do that within the structure of telling a more complicated story than you would tell, maybe, a
    six-year-old, then it’s super fun. Then, I think, generations of people can engage with each other
    while relating to the story, whether it’s grandparents and grandchildren or anyone in between.”
    Both streamed and in-person tickets areavailable online at bluebridgetheatre.ca or by calling 250-382-3370

    Please join us for the Public Open House for Woven In: Indigenous Women’s Activism and Media from 10am-5pm. Free admission, all day.

    Throughout the generations, Indigenous women across Turtle Island have been at the heart of grassroots activism and resurgence. The role of women has been of vital importance since time immemorial – safeguarding homelands, nationhood, sovereignty, and culture – despite the shift towards patriarchy that started with colonization. Woven In: Indigenous Women, Activism, and Media celebrates the intergenerational continuum of grassroots leadership and anticolonial organizing led by women through advocacy, communications, artistry, and community initiatives.

    Exhibition runs from NOVEMBER 19, 2022 – MAY 7, 2023.

    Curated by Gerry Ambers, Marianne Nicolson and Siku Allooloo.
