I’ve only just realised that Titanicdance is to return to our very own premier venue The Millennium Forum, Derry, for a limited run next month. The smash hit show from 2014 is to perform again from Thurs 5th – Sat 7th Feb 2015. This will certainly be one of the showstopping events in the North West during the first quarter of this, the new year. Tickets are currently on sale from the Box Office at the Millennium Forum, Derry. I was unfortunate not to catch this show last year due to unforeseen circumstances, but I won’t be making that mistake in 2015. All reports and reviews were simply outstanding. The show played to a capacity audience in the Forum last year and it is certainly expected that it’s short run in February this year will sell out prior to opening night on Feb 5th.
David McLaughlin, Chief Executive of the Millennium Forum and Co-Producer of Titanicdance, has said: “Titanicdance took audiences in the Millennium Forum by storm during its first performance, selling out our venue in May and leaving many people disappointed when they couldn’t get tickets. The reception it received from local audiences was phenomenal.”
Titanicdance is an Irish Dance sensation that tells the story of the world’s most famous ship from its beginning in the Belfast shipyard to its tragic end in the Atlantic Ocean. It embarked on an emotional journey of hope, aspiration, love, heartbreak and sadness that left audiences wanting more and bringing them to their feet. A cast of 30 world class Irish dancers and musicians set the scene for a breathtaking romantic performance that’s led by and choreographed by Principal Dancer and Creative Director, Raymond Sweeney. Sweeney brings a wealth of experience to Titanicdance having performed with Michael Flatley’s groundbreaking hit, Lord of the Dance for over fifteen years. Joining him onstage and assisting with choreography is Louise Hayden and James Keegan. The show also stars Nikita Cassidy, who, along with James, has danced principal roles in some of the world’s most famous dance shows and who currently stars in Michael Flatley’s new show, Dangerous Games, in London’s West End.
Titanicdance performs at the Millennium Forum from Thurs 5th Feb to Sat 7th Feb. Tickets are currently available from the Forum Box Office. Tel: 02871264455 or visit www.millenniumforum.co.uk for bookings.
If it’s one show you go to this first quarter it really should be Titanicdance!
