Tickets still available for themed dinner theater featuring The Titanic

(Seguin) -- Get ready to take a voyage on The Titanic. Tickets are now on sale for the themed dinner theater featuring the story of the historic R.M.S Titantic, the British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean during the early morning hours of April 15, 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during its trip to New York City. The dinner theatre, which commemorates the event’s anniversary, will be held during the next two weekends at The Aumont.

Bringing the experiences of some of these passengers back to life is Brandi Atchley, of Playland Productions. Atchley, who is donating some of the profits of the dinner theater to The Seguin Autism Group, says she is excited to showcase her own personal take of what happened through the eyes of some very special passengers.

"You get a passport that has a passenger's name on it. It's in an envelope and that's your ticket. When you come into the lobby. you have your first course. There will be passengers already there to greet you. Then, we move into the Rose Ballroom. There will be characters in there. All the passengers will perform between the courses and we have music and singing and Irish dancing, an Irish folks band and it's just going to be fantastic. I wrote the play. I did a lot of work on looking up these passengers and they're just fascinating stories. So I'm trying to bring different stories that people didn't know about," said Atchley.

Atchley says she guarantees participants will have a great time as they too get to experience this particular time in history.

"I'd love that. That's always fun to see patrons all dressed up, but those who don't, come anyway and enjoy the show. It is kind of interactive, because it's so close up and personal, because we don't have a stage so the passengers really talk to our guest. The whole idea is to make you feel like you boarded the Titanic and you are in one of the dining rooms on the Titanic. The passengers talk in the present tense, not the past tense. So it's like in the moment that they're on board and their experiences, just sharing that with our guests," said Atchley.

During the tragedy, an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew were on board, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the "deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history."

Atchley says her passion for The Titanic, the largest ship afloat at the time, began a long time ago.

"Its been a family love affair, the history of that, but it first started when I was a kid. I'm 47, so when I was younger, they hadn't discovered the ship yet and my dad had books about the Titanic and it was just fascinating. So my dad and I really would get into the history of it all so I kind of grew up with the curiosity of the Titanic," said Atchley.

Tickets which include a French feast being provided by Chef Paul A. Schroeder are $75 a person. The menu will consist of Poached Salmon, Dill Mousseline, Duck Confit or Chicken, Apple Glas, Haricot Vert, Herb Potatoes, Oysters Mignonette, Chocolate Eclairs and French Vanilla Ice Cream.

Show times are this Friday and Saturday and again on April 20, 21.

Tickets can be purchased at the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce office or online at Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
