Dundalk Community Theatre, in residence at the Dundalk campus of The Community College of Baltimore County, will present its production of Titanic: The Musical for six performances beginning Oct. 26.
The theater group will bring Titanic to the local stage in the year that marks the centennial of the sinking of the legendary (and reportedly unsinkable) ship.
Titanic introduces the audience to the stories of the third-class immigrants who boarded the ship on its maiden voyage hoping to start a new and better life in America and the second-class passengers who dreamed of becoming infamous like their first-class counterparts, according to a statement from theater officials.
The captivating story won Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score, as well as Best Musical of 1997 for writers Peter Stone and Maury Veston, according to theater officials.
Director Tom Wyatt will be assisted by musical director/conductor Ross Scott Rawlings, who returns to DCT after many years.
