THE five-time Tony Award-winning Titanic the Musical will be coming to Liverpool later this month.

Touring the UK for the first time, the cast of Titantic the Musical will perform at the Liverpool Empire from Monday, July 30 until Saturday, August 4.

Directed by Thom Southerland, the cast will feature eleven actors who are returning from previous performances at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Southwark Playhouse and Charing Cross Theatre.

Actors include the likes of Kieran Brown (The Phantom of the Opera), Emma Harrold (The Sound of Music), Greg Castiglioni (Fiddler on the Roof) and Victoria Serra (Mamma Mia).

The musical will tell the story of how on April 14, 1912 the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, collided with an iceberg and slowly sank - despite being called 'the unsinkable ship'.

Based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world, Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's stunning musical focuses on their hopes and aspirations.

The characters are unaware of the fate that awaits them - whether its the Third Class immigrants dream of a better life in America, the newly-enfranchised Second Class dream of achieving the lifestyles of the rich and famous or the millionaire Barons of the First Class dream of their mastery lasting forever.

Maury told the Globe: “The idea that a troupe of actors will tour this show in the UK, birthplace of the ship, where the workers of Belfast, the cabin boys and maids and stewards from Liverpool, the officers and crew, the stokers and stevedores from the Midlands all created a miraculous floating city, means more to me than I can say.

"I am touched that, musically, Titanic will finally be coming home, sung by the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of its builders – touched, and forever grateful.”
