StageArt presents The London Chamber Revival production of Titanic: The Musical, which will have its Australian premiere from Thursday 7 July to Sunday 24 July 2016 at Chapel off Chapel.

This stunning chamber musical tells the stories of the people on board and the men and women who determined their fate. In the final hour of April 14th, 1912 the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York, collided with an iceberg and ‘the unsinkable ship’ slowly sank. It was one of the most tragic events of the 20th Century. 1517 men, women and children lost their lives.

Based on actual characters, this hauntingly beautiful musical focuses on their hopes and aspirations. Unaware of the fate that awaits them, the third class immigrants dream of a better life in America, the newly liberated second class aspire to attain a more grand lifestyle of the rich and famous, while the millionaire aristocrats of the first class believe their wealth and power will last forever.

Director James Cutler (In The Heights, Parade) has created a beautiful production featuring a cast of 20 accomplished musical theatre and operatic singers and will be accompanied by a live six-piece chamber ensemble.  Each actor will portray three different roles – a first class, second class and third class passenger.

The principal cast includes:  Don Winsor (Sam, Mamma Mia – Broadway, Billy Flynn, Chicago – North Carolina Tour, Little Women – Kansas Tour, Andrews, Titanic – RAM Productions, Javert,Les Miserable – Hong Kong);  Greta Sheriff (Hugh Jackman: Broadway to Oz – Ensemble Dainty Group, Anything Goes – GFO / Opera Australia, La Cage Aux Folles – The Production Company,Wicked – GFO, My Fair Lady – Opera Australia); Paul Batey (Sweeney Todd – Victoria Opera, Don Carlos – Opera Australia, The Merry Widow – Opera Australia);  David Irvine (Bobby Fox’s Four Seasons, National Tour, Chris – Miss Saigon – Footlight Productions, Connect Four – Hayward Theatre); and Joel Granger (Sweeney Todd – New Zealand Opera, Dogfight – Doorstep Arts, 2015 WAAPA graduate).
