Majestically depicted, this epic story of grandeur captures the essence of lives lost and memories everlasting. Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, StageArt has announced the cast that will bring Titanic The Musical to life at Chapel Off Chapel in July.
Director James Cutler (In The Heights, Parade) has created a production featuring a cast of accomplished musical theatre and operatic singers, who will be accompanied by a live six-piece chamber ensemble. Each actor will portray three different roles – a first, second and third class passenger.
The Titanic The Musical cast includes: Paul Batey, Samuel Bennett, James Brown, Rosabelle Elliot, Molly Fisher, Joel Granger, Matthew Hyde, David Irvine, Timothy Lancaster, Matilda Moran, Harley Morrison, Jonathan Sebastian, Greta Sheriff, Christopher Southall, Amanda Stevenson, Alex Thompson, Don Winsor, and Casey Withoos.
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.
“This West End revival of Titanic The Musical is a true depiction of a musical at its best,” says Katherine Armstrong, Executive Producer StageArt. “Breathtaking music and an operatic score gives life to a truly elegant story of hope, heart, heroism and heartache.”
Titanic The Musical will be presented at Chapel Off Chapel: 7 – 24 July 2016. For more information, visit: www.chapeloffchapel.com.au for details.
