Elkton-Lake Benton High School students presented “Around the World in 80 Days” on Friday and Saturday in the high school gymnasium. The play was a Michael Hulett adap­tation of the Jules Verne novel of the same name.
The play recounted the well-loved story of Phileas Fogg (played by Daniel Junker), who bets his friends that he can go around the world in 80 days in 1872, in the days before air­planes.
