Casting announced for Titanic at the Charing Cross Theatre

Casting has been announced for Titanic's return to London.

Having played the Southwark Playhouse in 2013, Titanic will run at the Charing Cross Theatre between 28th May and 6th August 2016. 

Director Thom Southerland reunites with producer Danielle Tarento and musical stager Cressida Carre. Musical direction will be from Mark Aspinall with design by David Woodhead, lighting by Howard Hudson and sound by Andrew Johnson.
