Following the successful launch of Seabourn’s partnership with English musical theatre lyricist, Sir Tim Rice, the luxury cruise line announced that his production, “An Evening with Tim Rice,” is now playing on all Seabourn ships.
The show, in association with Belinda King Creative Productions and directed by Belinda King, first debuted in January 2017 on the inaugural voyage of Seabourn Encore and is now part of the evening entertainment repertoire on board Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest. It will also debut on Seabourn Ovation in 2018 when the ship is launched.
“An Evening with Tim Rice” is a concert-style presentation narrated via video by Rice to highlight some of his most loved work – from Jesus Christ Superstar to Aladdin and The Lion King. The show also includes a number from Chess called “One Night in Bangkok” and a “Circle of Life” finale. The production is enhanced through anecdotes and visuals from Rice’s personal archive.
Additional cast members have joined the show, many of whom have extensive experience performing on Broadway and the West End theatres. Additional cast members include: Dayle Hodge, who just finished playing Frankie Valli in Jersey boys; JC McCann, who starred as Joseph in Jersey Boys on the Broadway tour; Rachel Jerram, who appeared in Avenue Q in both the West End and U.K. tour; Matias Polar, who appeared in FAME on the U.S. tour; and Ellie Ann, who performed in Saturday Night Fever in the U.K. national tour.
