My name is Stephan Tait and I am an actor with Lung Ha's Theatre Company. And we are currently working on our brand new production the UK Premiere of Around The World in 80 days.

Rehearsals have been great fun and everyone is very excited about doing 26 scenes for the first time as we normally only do five scenes. Everyone is looking forward to this challenge.

On a personal note from me the rehearsal process has been fun and challenging at the same time because I play the part of Mr Phileas Fogg and there is a lot of dialogue to remember. But I am always up for a challenge much like when I done Chekhov shorts.

And I must say the costumes look fantastic everyone at Lung Ha's is really looking forward to putting on the show. We hope to see you there there will also be post performance discussions with the directors and cast after some of our performances.

bye for now
