Titanic, the musical
by McCallum Fine Arts Academy

Feb. 25 - Mar. 06, 2016

Not to be confused with the blockbuster film released in the same year as the musical's premiere, the production shows the final hours of a group of the fateful ship's passengers in a brand new story unconnected with the tale of Jack and Rose. Instead, the focus is on the real life characters including White Star Lines director J Bruce Ismay, Capt. Smith, and Thomas Andrews the architect, who in turn caused the tragedy by ignoring the ice warnings, but then tried to avert the disaster, and the fortunes of one man Jim Farrell, and three women in steerage (all ironically named Kate).

When the wide discrepancy between the number of survivors from each of the ship’s classes was revealed—all but two of the women in 1st Class were saved while 155 women and children from 2nd and 3rd (mostly 3rd) drowned—there was a new, long-overdue scrutiny of the prevailing social system and its values.

The rarely-performed musical play TITANIC examines the causes, the conditions and the characters involved in this ever-fascinating drama. This is the factual story of the ship—of her officers, crew and passengers, to be sure—but she will not, as has happened so many times before, serve as merely the background against which fictional, melodramatic narratives are recounted. The central character of  TITANIC THE MUSICAL is the TITANIC herself.

MacTheatre proudly presents a cast of 60 thespians in the epic musical Titanic, the 1997 Tony Award winner for Best Musical. MacTheatre’s productions are known for their professionalism, technical presentation and entertainment value. All shows will be in the McCallum Arts Center at 5600 Sunshine Dr. in central Austin.
