Joining forces once again with the Turtle Creek Chorale (TCC), Uptown Players once again presents a unique concert-style experience that brings together more than 150 actors and singers, plus a 15-piece orchestra for a production that’s not a full staging of the musical, but powerful and compelling nonetheless.
The harrowing and emotional musical took Broadway by storm in 1997, winning five Tony Awards in the process.
This production of Titanic features direction by Cheryl Denson with musical direction by Kevin Gunter, choral direction by TCC’s Artistic Director Sean Baugh, as well as choreography by Vicki Squires. The stellar cast joining the TCC includes Christopher Curtis as Thomas Andrews, Seth Womack as Frederick Barrett, Aaron White as Harold Bride, Chris Ramirez as Frederick Fleet, Lois Sonnier Hart as Ida Strauss and Laura Lites as Kate McGowan.
You won’t see an epic recreation of the ship’s sinking or gasp as a young Leo DiCaprio lets go of a floating door, but you will definitely be moved by the events that unfold onstage.
But please, no screaming about being King of the World during the ballads.
