Titanic resurfaces with help from 27 local theatre performers

Shadbolt Centre for the Arts 12 Apr '19 to 14 Apr '19 @ 7:30 PM - 10:30 PM

    Mention the name Titanic and most everyone listening could easily recite the legendary shipwreck story and the historic impression it left behind.

    Far fewer could likely sing any of the songs from Titanic the Musical – much less envision how a ship could be made to appear as if sinking on stage.

    Five-time Tony award winner Titanic the Musical is coming to Metro Vancouver. This time the docudrama, put to music, will be at Burnaby’s Shadbolt Centre for the Arts from April 12 – 14. A 27-member student cast from Lindbjerg Academy of Performing Arts is performing the production under the direction of Lindbjerg’s music theatre instructor Mark Turpin.

    True to the screenplay, the Lindbjerg production will be as authentic as the original Broadway production that got overshadowed by James Cameron’s silver screen blockbuster and its central love story portrayed by fictitious characters Jack Dawson (Leonardo di Caprio) and Rose DeWitt (Kate Winslet).

    “This group, albeit much younger than the historic characters they are depicting, has done a fantastic job of bringing this story to life. They have found a way to relate to what the passengers and crew had to be thinking about and feeling when they were aboard the ship.”

    Turpin explains his Titanic cast, over a period of seven months, has worked hard to produce a show that captures the real chronicles of the passengers and crew. In addition to studying the music and lines, blocking the ship scenes and mapping out the choreography, the crew studied the characters in-depth and even went to the Titanic exhibit that was on display in Metro Vancouver for several months last year. “That experience of going to the exhibit really inspired them all – evident in their portrayals I have seen in rehearsal,” says Turpin. “Audiences will not be disappointed.”
