THE Lowry have launched their production of Titanic, the musical to be performed at the Salford Theatre from May 7 to 12.

Those attending enjoyed a White Star Line-type afternoon tea after watching two cast members sing Proposal and the Night was Alive composed by Maury Yeston who also wrote the lyrics based on a book by Peter Stone.

An actual message sent from the stoker, Barrett to his fiancée, inspired the songs which were performed beautifully by Niall Sheehy as Barrett and Oliver Marshall as his bride-to-be, accompanied by Jordan Li-Smith.

Jo Lloyd from Smooth Radio, who hosted the event, stated that the roles were based on the lives of real passengers, including an ancestor of hers who, with her mother, survived, and lived to be 100.
