The Portland Players Presents TITANIC: THE MUSICAL
The Portland Players presents the epic, Titanic: The Musical, May 18 - June 3, 2018.
A stunning musical as massive as the ocean liner that shares its name, Titanic: The Musical, tells the stories of the people on board the legendary steamer and the men who got them there. Full of memorable characters based on the real men and women on the ship, Titanic is a powerful, complex look at the making of a tragedy.
The Portland Players production, directed by Michael Donovan with musical direction by Evan Cuddy, features 49 actors, the largest cast to ever grace the Portland Players stage. The production includes over two hundred costumes designed by Louise Keezer, a Southern Maine community theater legend and longtime collaborator with director, Michael Donovan. This is the second time that Donovan and Keezer have tackled this massive show; the pair worked together fourteen years ago on the 2004 Lyric Music Theater production.
It's not difficult to see what would make them want to do the show again. The beautiful music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and compassionate book by Peter Stone capture the stories from the whole range of humanity aboard the ship, paving the way for some truly breathtaking moments. Add to that a twelve-piece orchestra, hundreds of period costumes, a striking set by Timothy Baker, and creative lighting design by Jason "Chachi" Robinson, and something very special is sure to emerge. The final production of the Portland Players 87th Season, Titanic: The Musical, is certainly not to be missed!
