Titanic, the Musical

For quite some time my best friend, Kathryn and I have mentioned having a night out. We have been friends since we were at playschool together so for 34 of our 37 years!! We both have 2 children now and our social lives together revolve around them. Have you ever tried holding a conversation with 4 children aged 6,4,3 and 2 around you??? LOL!
We decided to go and watch an amateur dramatics production about Titanic at the Grand theatre in Blackpool. We made a real time of it by shopping in the afternoon, we both ended up buying only treats for our children! and then we ate tea at Frankie and Benny's!
The production was being portrayed by the Blackpool Operatic Players. Today is the 100th Anniversary of her sinking and whilst we were driving home last night was the time she actually struck the iceberg. Very poignant. The production was excellent, you would have never thought they were amateurs. It told of the story from her leaving Southampton with the passenger who was left behind and went all the way through the 5 days she was at sea giving facts and figures as it went through. The end was extremely emotive, the survivors were on the banking with blankets wrapped around them whilst the names of the victims were projected onto a screen.
