Cunard introduces new theatrical group

Cunard Lines has announced a new theatrical concept for its new Queen Elizabeth ship. The newly formed Queen Elizabeth Theatre Company will put on musical performances and plays on board the new vessel, which enters service in October 2010. Productions include ‘Slice of Saturday Night’, a Neil Simon triple bill and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. After each show, there will be a Q&A session between the audience and actors. “The entertainment on Queen Elizabeth is the most extensive ever seen on a Cunard liner, mixing tradition with satire,” explained Cunard’s President and Managing Director Peter Shanks. “The Royal Court Theatre is as good as any London West End or Broadway Theatre - and we have created our own Theatre Company to really bring it to life.”
