The Voyage of the RMS Titanic

The mighty Titanic, The Ship of Dreams, built by Thomas Andrews, wasone of the largest moving objects ever built, sets sail on her maiden voyage. The passengers revel in her luxury, while waiting ahead in the dark, an unavoidable disaster looms. Although created as a musical this fictional story is accurately based on the historical facts known about the sinking of the Titanic. Complete 50 minute show supplied ready to perform by 15 to 100 children with script, (including stage directions) historical Fact Sheets, Art Pack showing how to make the scenery, costumes and props.

Parents were weeping at the end as, whilst the company sang The Ship of Dreams, photographs of the victims were projected. To prevent applause immediately after the ending of the song, which somehow seemed inappropriate, the final slide was of a small child that cross-faded into a black slide bearing the word. Silence . . ..  After 15 or 20 seconds, the full lights came up and the cast enjoyed the applause. It was very poignant.? Neil Gardner Bramcote Junior School
