Davis Musical Theatre Company Opens Titanic, The Musical

By Steve Isaacson | November 15, 2021

On April 10, 1912, the RMS Titanic began its fateful ocean passage in Southampton, England. Titanic was the biggest ship ever built; it was declared to be unsinkable. But five days later, not long after hitting an iceberg, the Titanic sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic. That trip… and that ship… are so steeped in history that more than 100 years after that fateful event, the world’s fascination with it has not ebbed. This is not a musical of the 1997 movie by James Cameron.

(L-R) Arthur Vassar (as Edgar Beane), Chris Cay Stewart (as Alice Beane), Ryan Favorite (as Charles Clarke) and Andi Bourquin (as Caroline Neville) sail on the ill-fated Ocean Liner, RMS Titanic in DMTC’s production of the 1997 Tony Award-winning musical, Nov 12-Dec 5, 2021
