The sinking of the Titanic in the early hours of April 15, 1912, remains the quintessential disaster of the twentieth century. A total of 1.517 souls—men, women, and children– lost their lives (only 711 survived). The fact that the finest, largest, strongest ship in the world-called, in fact, the “unsinkable’ ship-should have been lost during its maiden voyage is so incredible that, had it not actually happened, no author would have dared to contrive it.
The musical play Titanic examines the causes, the conditions and the characters involved in this ever-fascinating drama. This is the factual story of that ship and her officers, crew, and passengers.

The SUGAR BEAN SISTERS by Nathan Sanders
In this Southern Gothic comedy of romance, murder and alien abduction, the Nettle sisters are determined to escape spinsterhood—one by going to Salt Lake and finding a good Mormon husband and the other by hopping on the spaceship when the “space people” return. Faye and Willie Mae are returning home to their swamp dwelling in Sugar Bean, Florida, after a disastrous daytrip to Disney World. Having witnessed the landing of an alien space craft some 25 years ago in her daddy’s sugarcane field, Faye prepares for the return of her celestial visitors on this night, the very anniversary of that fateful day.
