PLU performers hit the stage for the Titanic Centennial

Members of PLU’s Choral Union and a few members of University Chorale and Choir of the West and some recent alumni will perform in the 5th Avenue Theatre’s Titanic Friday, April 13 through Sunday, April 15.

In all, 76 PLU students and alumni will join the productions chorus, making this performance the theater’s largest yet.

“There’s 140 performers on stage—that’s a first,” said 5th Avenue’s Music Director Ian Eisendrath. “I don’t think this many people have ever been on our stage. It tells the epic story of the ship.”

This is the first time PLU has done a production with the theater, but hopefully it’s not the last, said Richard Nance, Director of Choral Union and Choir of the West at PLU.

Nance and Eisendrath have five rehearsals scheduled before the first performance Friday at 8 p.m. There will be two performances Saturday, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and a show Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at: www.5thavenue.org.
