Five-time Tony award-winning Titanic The Musical will make its maiden tour to the UK and Ireland and will make a stop off at the Theatre Royal later this year.
The tour visits Nottingham for one week from Monday July 2 until Saturday July 7.
In the final hour of April 14 1912, the RMS Titanic on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York collided with an iceberg and ‘the unsinkable ship’ slowly sank.
It was one of the most tragic and infamous disasters of the 20th Century as 1,517 men, women and children lost their lives.
The musical is based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world.
Unaware of the fate that awaits them, the third class immigrants dream of a better life in America.
The newly enfranchised second class dream of achieving the lifestyles of the rich and famous and the millionaire barons of the first class dream of their mastery lasting forever.
Maury Yeston, who wrote the music and lyrics for the musical, said: “The idea a troupe of actors will tour this show in the UK means more to me than I can say.
“It’s the birthplace of the ship, where the workers of Belfast, the cabin boys and maids and stewards from Liverpool, the officers and crew, the stokers and stevedores from the Midlands all created a miraculous floating city.
“I am touched that, musically, Titanic will finally be coming home, sung by the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of its builders – touched, and forever grateful.”
The cast will feature 11 actors returning from Titanic The Musical’s performances at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Southwark Playhouse and Charing Cross Theatre.
Having received its UK premiere in 2013 at Southwark Playhouse, the production returned to London in 2016 for an 11-week season at the Charing Cross Theatre.
