The plot

In the final hours of April 14 1912, the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York, collided with an iceberg and ‘the unsinkable ship’ slowly sank. 1517 men, women and children lost their lives.

Based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world, Titanic: The Musical is a stunning and stirring production focusing on the hopes, dreams and aspirations of her passengers who each boarded with stories and personal ambitions of their own. All innocently unaware of the fate awaiting them, the Third Class immigrants dream of a better life in America, the Second Class imagine they too can join the lifestyles of the rich and famous, whilst the millionaire Barons of the First Class anticipate legacies lasting forever.

Titanic: The Musical is the winner of three Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book of a Musical and an outstanding ensemble production.
