Around The World in Lancaster


As you can see, the Dukes has spared no expense in creating the set for 'Around the world...' Well, not exactly; the cast spent a day at the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railey in the Lake District to get promotional pictures

The Dukes outdoor walkabout theatre show Around The World In 80 Days (July 21-August 27) is proving one of the biggest the Lancaster-based theatre has undertaken.

Back again in Williamson Park - where the summer shows have been entertaining families since 1987 - the cast and the show's creatives have been rehearsing and getting to grips with their 44 costumes, 32 hats, 12 pairs of shoes, two wigs and four moustaches in support of six quick-change actors covering 32 different characters.

Audiences travel around the beautiful park, moving to different locations to watch each scene unfold – and many turn up early, weather premitting, to enjoy picnics and admire the views across Morecambe Bay.

More than half a million people have seen this annual event over the years. In 2016 the production of The Hobbit won the UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People.

Performances are at 7.15 and must be booked in advance.
