Commonweal Theatre Company Presents: Around the World in 80 Days


Fri, Jun 6th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. — The Commonweal Theatre Company presents “Around the World in 80 Days” by Mark Brown June 27 through October 27. Follow the incredible journey of Phileas Fogg on his outrageous quest to circumnavigate the globe in only 80 days. Discounted tickets are available for previews, June 20 to June 26. Reservations can be made by phoning the theatre box office at 800-657-7025 or by visiting www.commonwealtheatre.org.

“Around the World in 80 Days” is the third offering in Commonweal’s 26th Season and is directed by Alan Bailey, who returns to share his expertise at turning theatrical convention on its head, having directed “The 39 Steps” for the company in 2012. Bailey was also the director of last year’s touching drama, “The Memory of Water.” “We’re excited at the Commonweal,” says Bailey, “to explore the theme of inclusiveness in our production of Around the World in 80 Days, the classic story of a set-in-his-ways English gentleman finding joy as he learns to accept – and even embrace – the multitude of cultures around the world. The production also promises laughs and adventure as five actors play forty roles and create every corner of the earth right before the audience’s eyes.”

Commonweal Resident Ensemble Member David Hennessey takes on the role of main protagonist. Rounding out the cast is Commonweal Executive Director Hal Cropp along with Resident Ensemble Member Adrienne Sweeney and Annual Members Gary Danciu and Diana Jurand.

Thomas White, Commonweal Production Manager, serves as stage manager and leads the production team consisting of designers Kit Mayer (sets), Wu Chen Khoo (lights), Annie Cady (costumes), Alan Bailey (sound), and Ana Hagedorn (props).

Thanks to support from F&M Community Bank and Tri-County Electric Cooperative, special weekday matinee performances are available for school groups at only $5 per person, which includes a study guide, video materials, pre-show classroom workshop, and post-performance discussion with the actors.

Funding for Commonweal Theatre’s programming is provided in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature, a grant from the McKnight Foundation, and private funders. All performances are at the Commonweal Theatre, 208 Parkway Avenue North, in downtown Lanesb .....
