Casting news

FINAL casting has been announced for the return of the multi award-winning production of the Broadway musical Titanic, which runs at Charing Cross Theatre from Saturday, May 28 to Saturday, August 6, 2016.

Eight of the original cast of 20 will be returning to the production – Scarlett Courtney, Matthew Crowe, Sion Lloyd, Shane McDaid, Philip Rham (picured as Captain Smith), Dudley Rogers, Victoria Serra and Judith Street.

They will be joined by David Bardsley, Alistair Barron, Helena Blackman, Scott Cripps, James Gant, Luke George, Douglas Hansell, Rob Houchen, Claire Machin, Jessica Paul, Peter Prentice and Dom Simpson.

Titanic is the first production in a major season of musicals – including the European premiere of Titanic composer Maury Yeston’s Death Takes a Holiday – announced last month by Thom Southerland on his appointment as Artistic Director of Charing Cross Theatre.

Southerland, who directs Titanic, said: “I am incredibly excited that Titanic will set sail for London again and will open our new season of Musical Theatre at Charing Cross Theatre. Having created the production in the intimate setting of Southwark Playhouse, it will be wonderful to see Maury Yeston’s epic musical at such close proximity again. Having opened productions of the show in major theatres in Japan and Canada, it really feels like the show is coming home.”

On her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, RMS Titanic collided with an iceberg and sank. Titanic is based on actual characters aboard the great ship, focussing on their hopes and aspirations.
