In the final hours of 14th April 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 disasters of the 20th Century. 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.

In our latest vlog, we ‘Hipp the road’ on our very own voyage of discovery to Sheffield where we come face to face with the people who make this magnificent production happen. Plus, we discover more about some of the incredible true stories which inspired Maury Yetson and Peter Stone’s musical masterpiece…

The triumphant Titanic The Musical docks at Birmingham Hippodrome next week from Mon 4 – Sat 9 June with limited tickets still available.
