Titanic: The Musical

Probably the most famous dramatic recreation of the ill-fated voyage of the Titanic is the James Cameron film that starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. It was released in 1997, the same year that a musical version of the story debuted on Broadway. With music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and book by Peter Stone, Titanic: the Musical was warmly received by critics and at the box office. It won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Thursday and Friday Do It With Class Young People’s Theatre is presenting its version of the musical. There’s two performances daily at Conexus Arts Centre at 12:30 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $16.25-$29.75, and can be obtained by calling 306-525-9999. To give you a taste here’s an excerpt from a 2012 school production:
