THE TONY Award-winning Titanic The Musical is to embark on a new tour of the UK in 2023 and return to Southampton during the anniversary of the tragedy in April. 

Produced by Danielle Tarento, Steven M Levy and Vaughan Williams in association with the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, the production will open ten years on from its critically acclaimed debut.

In the final hours of 14th April 1912, the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, collided with an iceberg and 'the unsinkable ship' slowly sank. It was one of the biggest disasters of the 20th Century. 1,517 men, women and children lost their lives.

Based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world, Titanic The Musical is a stunning and stirring production focusing on the hopes, dreams and aspirations of her passengers who each boarded with stories and personal ambitions of their own.

All innocently unaware of the fate awaiting them, the third class immigrants’ dream of a better life in America, the second class imagine they too can join the lifestyles of the rich and famous, whilst the millionaire Barons of the first class anticipate legacies lasting forever.

Danielle Tarento said: "Steven, Vaughan and I are so excited that the great ship Titanic is setting sail on a new UK Tour. I can’t believe that it’s been 10 years since that first production - it feels like a lifetime ago and only just the other day in equal measure. After the couple of years that we’ve all lived through, to be able to mark this anniversary by revisiting some favourite venues from the last tour and also bringing the show to some new ones feels especially joyful."
