Titanic – The Musical

The story of the RMS Titanic, which in 1912 collided with an iceberg and sank on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, is one of the best known and most tragic disasters of the 20th Century.

Based on real people aboard the ship, Titanic the Musical is a stunning and stirring production focusing on the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the passengers and crew who each boarded with stories and ambitions of their own.

With music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and a book by Peter Stone, the original Broadway production of Titanic The Musical won five Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.

Tickets are priced from £12 and are available from Dundee City Box Office, the Society and any cast member.

Previous Show – Mack & Mabel (November 2017)

Mack & Mabel, originally released in 1974 (Michael Stewart’s book was revised for this version in 2015 by his sister Francine Pascal), is a fabrication of fact and fiction – delivered in flashback from the point of view of Mack Sennett (1880-1960).

Mack admits to two obsessions: movies and Mabel Normand (1892-1930). He is the struggling director in the teens of the 20th century, who transplants his studio “family” to California, sets up Keystone Studios and rat-a-tats out slapstick two-reelers. She is the girl from the deli who erupts on to the set with a sandwich delivery. Mack spots potential. Mabel becomes a star.

They fall in love, but he’s not romantic (“I won’t send roses”); she is (dreamily reprising this declaration of non-commitment). He wants “to make the world laugh”; she wants acting to be more than pratfalls and guffaws. Artistic differences tear them apart – spectacularly when Mabel’s on-set explosion sets off a custard-pie fight! She leaves to make feature films; he launches the Bathing Beauties, Keystone Cops and a thousand pie-in-the-face gags: “No one pretended that what we were doing was art.”

With spectacular production numbers and recreations of iconic silent film scenes mixed with a healthy dose of laughs, romance, action and tragedy – all topped off with the genius of Jerry Herman’s score – this show is pure entertainment.
