Special to 1812Blockhouse

This weekend, the most famous ship in history will dock at the Renaissance Theatre for a limited run of Titanic the Musical, happening live and in person May 21-23.

“Titanic, The Musical examines the causes, the conditions and the characters involved in this ever-fascinating drama. This is the factual story of that ship—of her officers, crew and passengers, to be sure—but she will not, as has happened so many times before, serve as merely the background against which fictional, melodramatic narratives are recounted. The central character of our Titanic is the Titanic herself” said Renaissance Theatre’s Artistic Director, Michael Thomas.

The musical features an impressive cast of over 20 professional actors from Mansfield, Columbus, Cleveland, and beyond. This cast is filled with familiar local faces such as Michael Miller as Captain E.J. Smith, Ryan Shreve as Thomas Andrews, Scott Smith as Barrett, Lori Turner and Mark Crumrine as Ida and Isador Straus, Leah Gesouras as Mate Mullins, Miss Ohio 2020 Caroline Grace Williams, and even her dog, Oakley Williams.

Ryan Shreve, who plays Thomas Andrews, the designer of Titanic said “For those who have been itching to get out for a night on the town, this is the perfect opportunity. In person tickets are still available but going quickly due to limited capacity and sheer love of the show. It’s been such a remarkable experience to work with this cast and crew, and it’s amazing how obsessed people have become with the Titanic after working on this show. It truly is such a magnificent story, and I know we’re very excited to share it with this community.”

For those not ready to attend events in person, the Renaissance Theatre will also be live streaming Titanic for each performance. For more information on live streaming a Titanic performance, visit bit.ly/TitanicStream.
