The much anticipated revival of Titanic the musical on course for The Grand Opera House
On Tuesday team GNI were privileged to be invited along to the launch event for Titanic the musical which will be staged in the Grand Opera House from 24th April. Rightly fitting the event took place in the Titanic exhibition centre, Titanic's true home, over a period of 3 years 15,000 shipbuilders constructed the then largest luxury liner the world had seen.
Head of Marketing at the GOH Simon Goldrick warmly greeted us before a series of short insightful talks from the guest speakers, Allison Murphy (Belfast Titanic Society's), Steven Levy & Danielle Tarento (Producer's) and Thom Southerland (Director).
Between speeches we were entertained with a live performance of the Proposal/The Night which was sung by London cast members Niall Sheehy (Barrett) and Oliver Marshall (Bride) accompanied by pianist Malcolm Forbespekham.
