The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic is memorialized in “Titanic: The Musical” when it sets sails onto the Davis Musical Theatre Company stage starting Friday.

A 55-member cast, 20-piece orchestra and a tilting Titanic set highlight the five-time Tony Award-winning musical (including Best Musical of 1997).

Directed by Steve Isaacson, with choreography by Jacob Montoya and musical direction by Jonathan Rothman and Isaacson, “Titanic: The Musical” recreates the story of massive ship that was dubbed unsinkable by its creators, only to have it disappear into the abyss on its maiden voyage, taking the lives of more than 1,500 passengers and crew.

At each performance, audience members will be assigned the name of a passenger aboard the ill-fated ship. They’ll receive a short biography of the passenger and what class they traveled in, and have the chance to see if their passenger survived.

To memorialize the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the historic ship, “Titanic: The Musical” will be performed at the exact moment of the sinking of the Titanic on April 14 at 8:20 p.m.

As a tribute to the exact moment the ship went down, 8:20 p.m. PDT on April 14, DMTC will feature an 11-course meal inspired by the meal served on Titanic on that fateful night. Tickets for the fundraiser benefiting the nonprofit theater company are $100 and include the dinner and the show.

In addition, on opening night, cruise pictures will be available for free to audience members.

Curtain time is 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Sundays, through May 6, at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in Davis.

Tickets are $18 general, $16 for students and seniors, and $14 per person for groups of 10 or more. Tickets are available online at www.dmtc.org or by calling (530) 756-3682.
