Story and Book by Peter Stone | Music and Lyrics by Maury Yeston

The UCF Symphony Orchestra and Theatre UCF bring an epic story to life. Yeston and Stone’s Tony Award-winning musical Titanic tells the stories of real passengers aboard the legendary doomed steamer—the workers in the boiler room, the first-class travelers and the poorest passengers who scraped together their life savings to purchase a ticket to America—with heartfelt lyrics and soaring melodies.

A pre-performance talk, led by UCF Faculty Member, Scott Warfield, will be held in the Tupperware Brands Hospitality Suite on Saturday, April 6 from 6-7 PM.

Listen to the Original Broadway Cast Recording.


A note from the Director

Titanic opens with a thrilling, full-throated anthem to the majesty of the Titanic. As they prepare to set sail, there is excitement, hope and awe from all walks of life boarding the ship from billionaires like John Jacob Astor, to poor immigrants looking for a new beginning. The “unsinkable” titan of a ship is the future, and embodies the pride and potential of a new world full of technical marvels and unlimited potential. The world is on the verge of a remarkable new age, and these 2,200 passengers have a front seat to that adventure. In this Titanic, we follow the journeys of passengers from first, second and third-class bound for America.

Like any tragedy, the hope and possibilities are ultimately stripped away, revealing the greed, hubris and unforgivable oversights that led to the death of so many 107 years ago. Investigations proved that “a laxity of regulation and hasty inspection” were reasons for the awful outcome.

The musical explores the inequities of class and the idea that, before our creator, we are all equal in the end. Only 174 third-class passengers survived out of over 700. The “Edwardian Summer of pride, dominance and power came to an end as the grand ship slipped below the waves.”

It has been a powerful journey for the cast of students to explore the myths and histories surrounding the real people who sailed on that fateful journey. It is with great reverence that we offer you their stories through the lens of Yeston and Stone’s majestic musical.
