It’s been 107 years since the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg on the eve of April 14, 1912, and the unsinkable ship sank. Over time, we would come to know the compelling stories of her passengers and crew who became part of a fascinating story of people from all social classes who set sail on this historic journey. While some enjoyed the luxury of the finest ship at sea, others sailed to what they hoped would be a new life in America—all ultimately experiencing an unexpected fate surmounted by acts of heroism and human kindness.
This spring, Voices of Hope, a local non-profit that raises funds for cancer research through theater, invites you on board their production of the Tony Award-Winning Best Musical, TITANIC, which sails onto the stage at North Shore Music Theatre for the first time. With a lush and stunning musical score and compelling real life stories of her passengers, TITANIC is a captivating experience for lovers of both history and musical theater, as it explores the conditions, causes, and indomitable human spirit of the legendary “ship of dreams.”
Celebrating Voices of Hope’s 10th anniversary season, TITANIC will have two performances: Saturday, May 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday May 5 at 2:00 p.m. Each of the 100+ VOH members participating as cast, creative team, technical crew, orchestra, and event coordinators, are dedicated to raising funds for cancer research through musical performance. Proceeds from the production support cutting-edge clinical trials being conducted at the Henri and Belinda Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center.
Tickets for the event can be purchased by contacting the theatre box office by phone at 978-232-7200, online at www.nsmt.org, or in person at 62 Dunham Road in Beverly, MA. More information is available at www.voicesofhopeboston.org.
