The Courthouse Center for the Arts, West Kingston, announced a two-week extension of its hit production of “Titanic,” the 1997 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical. The musical will continue performances through Sunday, July 29 in the air-conditioned facility.
“Even God couldn’t sink this ship,” said Bruce Ismay, the owner. One hundred years ago last April 12, the R.M.S. Titanic sank after grazing an iceberg in the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It was the maiden voyage of the “largest floating palace in the world.”
Performance schedule is Thursday through Saturday evenings at 8 p.m., with matinees on Thursdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. For information and tickets call 782-1018 or visit www.courthousearts.org. There is no performance on Thursday, July 27. Courthouse Arts is an air-conditioned, handicapped-accessible facility and there is ample parking.
Following “Titanic,” the company will present “Coastal Disturbances,” a comedy by Tina Howe. A private beach in New England is the setting for the romance between Leo Hart, a lifeguard, and Holly Dancer, a New York photographer. The theater at the Courthouse will be filled with sand for this production. Performances begin Thursday, Aug. 9 at 8 p.m.
