Sail on! Sail on…great ship. Godspeed, Titanic. (in concert!) In a bold and ambitious move, and an unprecedented trend in the area’s community theatre scene, The Heritage Players launch the first “in-concert” musical production on their stage of the 2018 season with their floating city Titanic: In Concert. Directed by David Jennings with Musical Direction by David Zajic, this “concert-plus” experience is the ship of dreams for any community theatre.
Setting sail with an ambitious production, The Heritage Players is preparing to launch Titanic in Concert. Because of the piece’s ensemble nature, TheatreBloom wanted to explore the hopes and dreams of the cast and the musicians (as there are nearly 25 of each, making this an almost 50-performer theatrical experience.) Asking each of the players- both on stage and in the pit- about their dreams has proved to be a remarkable experience.
“Our task was to dream upon and then create— a floating city!” The ship of dreams, so she’s called, in her finest element— the musical— Titanic sails for Heritage Players this winter! Debuting upon the stage of the Rice Auditorium at the Spring Grove Hospital Campus, Heritage Players is performing Titanic in Concert as their winter production offering. Exploring this ship of dreams, TheatreBloom sits down with Director David Jennings and Musical Director David Zajic to discuss the living dream of this massive musical.
