Titanic Assembly plus Costa Concordia

Titanic Assembly plus Costa Concordia. April 2012 is the centenary of the Titanic’s first and last voyage. The original script that I wrote, entitled Titanic assembly or class play, examined what happened on the Titanic’s maiden cruise and looked at why it was such a shocking tragedy. Suitable for upper Key Stage II children (plus) this assembly combines the delivery of information and drama.

The Titanic plus Costa Concordia is an extended version adding a brief section about the Costa Concordia to the end of the original script, referring to the events of Friday, January 13th 2012.

I have also produced a FREE comparative study of these two events (Free Scripts section).

Child 1:             Sadly, the possibility of tragedies at sea can never be completely eliminated.

Child 2:            The events of January 13 2012 bore witness to this fact.

Child 3:            On Friday the thirteenth of January 2012 the cruise ship Costa Concordia set off from the Roman port of Civitavecchia.

Child 4:            The seven day cruise was scheduled to visit Savonna, Marseilles, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Cagliari and Palermo.

Child 5:            Just hours after setting off, disaster struck.

Child 6:            At around 9.40pm there was a huge boom and crash

Child 7:            Followed by the loss of electricity

Child 8:            And water pouring into the ship through a gash in her side, caused when she collided with rocks off the island of Giglio.

Child 9:            The order to abandon ship was not given until forty five minutes later.

Child 10:          As the ship listed sideways, a number of lifeboats could not be launched

Child 1:            And confusion added to the chaos as nobody knew where to go as there had not been time for an emergency drill before disaster struck.

Child 2:            Of the three thousand two hundred passengers and one thousand crew members, around thirty are thought to have perished.

Child 3:            Many questions were asked around the circumstances of the disaster.
