Titanic

  • The world’s most famous ill-fated ship comes alive with artefacts and interactive recreations with “The largest and undoubtedly the most comprehensive Titanic Exhibition in the world” – Perth Now.

    Titanic The Exhibition unravels the mystery of the unforgettable tale of RMS Titanic’s first and final deadly voyage in a thrilling self-guided tour.

    Families and fans can re-live the opulence and tragedy of the world’s most famous ill-fated voyage through dramatic room recreations, 100-year-old artefacts and hands-on activities.

    Titanic The Exhibition features over 375 artefacts taken directly from the pre-sinking Titanic and her nearly identical sister ship Olympic, providing a rare opportunity to view the grand Titanic as she was before falling to her watery grave. Rare artefacts were removed from Titanic before she sailed to New York, and a lucky few pieces survived the disaster secured in the coat pockets of those rescued. Original props and set pieces from James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster film Titanic are also on display, including a recreation of the famous “Heart of the Ocean” diamond necklace.

    This all-sensory exhibition experience transports visitors back to 1912 to absorb the sights, sounds and smells of opulent and excessive luxury steamship travel. Titanic was the largest and most luxurious ship of its time, and visitors will learn of the ships’ place in history from her conception and construction to that unforgettable day of disaster.

    Each entry to the exhibition is completely unique, as every visitor will receive a Boarding Pass that contains the personal information of an actual First, Second or Third Class passenger.  Visitors are encouraged to feel connected to the passengers’ journey by learning about their background and life onboard. The experience culminates in the Memorial Gallery, where visitors learn of their chosen passenger’s fate on the cold early morning of 15 April, 1912.

    “Everyone can relate to someone on Titanic and the story of her voyage still resonates all over the world,” said Tom Zaller, President/CEO of Imagine Exhibitions Pte. Ltd. “This particular exhibition, that will appeal to all ages, immerses the visitor in the moving tale of Titanic’s voyage at every part of her journey – allowing visitors to experience the sights, sounds and stories as if they were on the ship.”

    The Byron Kennedy Hall is itself an artefact of 1920’s charm and style, precisely complimenting that of Titanic’s 1920s England.

    An education kit for Titanic The Exhibition will be available to download from www.titanictheexhibition.com.au.

    History is alive again in the stunning, informative and heartbreaking Titanic The Exhibition, opening Saturday 8 April at The Byron Kennedy Hall, The Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park.

  • Described as Fawlty Towers meets Noises Off, The Play That Goes Wrong has a host of awards to its credit, including the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and the 2014 Whatsonstage.com award for Best New Comedy.Since the hilarious masterpiece stumbled into Melbourne, The Play That Goes Wrong actually appears to be doing something right for Australian audiences. The Herald Sun acclaimed the disaster-on-stage as “achingly funny” while The Age said the comedy “has the audience rolling in the aisles.”The Play That Goes Wrong opens in Sydney on 6 April, and will then travel to Canberra from 25 April, Brisbane from 4 May and Perth from 31 May 2017.The Producers persuaded an incompetent bunch of ‘would be’ thespians to take part in the theatrical shambles, including BROOKE SATCHWELL, DARCY BROWN, FRANCINE CAIN, ADAM DUNN, LUKE JOSLIN, GEORGE KEMP, JORDAN PROSSER, NICK SIMPSON-DEEKS and TAMMY WELLER, as well as JAMES MARLOWE from the original West End production.The Play That Goes Wrong introduces ‘The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society‘ who are attempting to put on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong…does, as the accident-prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields and directed by Mark Bell, The Play That Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring.  The Play That Goes Wrong, which started its life at a London fringe venue with only four paying customers at the first performance, is now enjoying its third catastrophic year on the West End and has gone on to play to an audience of over a quarter of a million.

    Very clever and well executed! See it before the ticketing goes “wrong”.
