    The story begins with a bank robbery by a mysterious figure. We are introduced to Mr. Fogg – honest-looking, good teeth, and well-turned out. He is accompanied by his newly-acquired valet, Mr. Passepartout. Hot in their pursuit is the detective Fix of Scotland Yard, who thinks that Fogg is the man who robbed the bank. This madcap adventure quickly moves along on a succession of locomotives, steamers, and hilarity.

  • IN THE NEWS

  • "We're really happy to see these high-quality children's theater productions come to Marin. Our family has made the trek to see many of the BACT productions in Berkeley, and have always had a great time. While Berkeley's not too far from Marin, we're glad to have these productions right in our own backyard now." – MarinMommies.com

    "I was as impressed with The Cat in the Hat, the first play in MTC's Theater Series for Young Audiences, as my granddaughter... If the remainder of the Theater for Young Audiences season can come anywhere near the gusto of this play, I can guarantee matinee happiness." – Mill Valley Herald
