ARBROATH Musical Society is currently putting the finishing touches to the next production, ‘Titanic - The Musical’, which will run in the Webster Memorial Theatre from February 7 until 11.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Titanic’s fateful maiden voyage and this is the reason that the musical society has decided to commemorate the tragedy by re-staging this moving story.

The Scottish Premiere of ‘Titanic’ was presented by Arbroath Musical Society in 2005 and the company feels it is fitting that they will stage the first scheduled production of the show in 2012.

Rehearsals restarted on Monday at St Thomas’ Church hall, Dishlandtown Street.

Tickets for the show are available from The Webster Memorial Theatre box office, which is open from Tuesday to Friday between 1 and 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., or by calling direct on 01241 435800. All tickets are priced at £12, with a special opening night concession of £10.

Arbroath Musical Society is also hosting a Gala Evening, on Friday, February 10. This includes entry to the performance, complimentary souvenir programme and admittance to the first class dining saloon where pre-sail drinks and buffet are to be served. Tickets are priced at £20 and are available from any committee member or by calling 08448700241.
