Astral Theatre Collective proudly presents
Experience R.M.S. Titanic
“Titanic” is a name that resonates throughout the hearts of many people, even after 107 years. In the early morning hours of April 15, 1912, the R.M.S. Titanic sank beneath the icy waters of the North Atlantic after colliding with an iceberg. “Experience R.M.S. Titanic” brings the story to life, bringing her out of the pages of History through the use of:
- Highly skilled performers in dramatic arts
- Historically researched monologues
- Historically accurate costumes
- Historically accurate reproductions and props
- Actual, verified small artifacts from the doomed liner
It is an experience you won’t soon forget. For students, we also offer:
- Coloring sheets
- Additional learning activities
- A list of reading materials
After the success of the 2019 tour of the Kanawha County WV Public Library System, Astral Theatre Collective is welcoming inquiries from interested venues. This performance is an excellent event for any library, school, historical society, church, or event. Here is what the Kanawha County Public Library has to say about this program and Astral Theatre Collective: Astral Theatre Letter of Support (9.27.19)
John W. Johnson (Captain Edward John Smith, R.D., R.N.R.)
John has been interested in the story of R.M.S. Titanic since he was a boy. At that time, he began devouring ever bit of literature and media that he could find about the great ship. Today, he is honored to be portraying a man that he has admired for so long – Captain E.J. Smith.
John is no stranger to performing, just look at his many credits listed on the page devoted to him on this site. He looks forward to the opportunity to bring this wonderful story to new audiences.
Kelly Strom (Margaret Tobin Brown)
For many years now, the story of the “Unsinkable Molly” Brown has been the stuff of legend. However, no one brings her to life better than Kelly Strom. Hand picked for this role, Kelly adds both depth and tenacity to a character that so many seem to regard as the heroine of the entire story.
Kelly is an accomplished actress, director, instructor, and writer. She was educated in some of the finest performing arts programs in the United States. Presently, she, with her husband Dennis, are the owners of Strom Studios and The Limelight Theatre Company located in Dunbar, West Virginia. Like John Johnson, she is excited to be presenting this great story, encompassing the true drama of life wrapped into one terrible event.
