Norwegian Cruise Line has announced “Beetlejuice” The Musical as the headline production aboard its newest ship, Norwegian Viva.
The cruise line has also released the ship’s full lineup of onboard entertainment offerings debuting August 2023.
This will be the first time that the Tony Award®-nominated musical will be performed at sea.
The 90-minute Broadway adaptation of Tim Burton’s iconic 1988 film narrates the story of the Deetz family as they attempt to remodel an uproariously haunted house.
The musical’s paranormal antics will be heightened by NCL’s three-story multi-purpose Viva Theatre & Club and its immersive special effects and cutting-edge lighting and audio.
David J. Herrera, the incoming President of Norwegian Cruise Line said:
“NCL has a history of pioneering the cruise experience and delivering the high-calibre entertainment programming our guests expect.
“We are dedicated to pushing the envelope, delivering on those expectations, and putting our guests first as we elevate our onboard offerings for the ultimate vacation at sea.
“This summer, I cannot wait to bring the fun and nostalgia of ‘Beetlejuice’ to our all-new Norwegian Viva.”
NCL’s Senior Vice President of Entertainment and Cruise Programming, Richard Ambrose, adds:
“We pride ourselves on not only delivering amazing performances for theatre fans but introducing guests to Broadway and West End-caliber shows, which are made even more special by the incredible setting of the Viva Theatre & Club that seamlessly transforms from a best-in-class theatre experience to an expansive nightclub.”
Cruisers can look forward to show tune classics including “Day-O,” and “Jump in the Line (Shake, Senora),” while also revelling in the nostalgia from the pop culture classic film.
Michelle D’Amico, who was a cast member of the Broadway production of “Beetlejuice” will join Norwegian Viva playing the role of “Lydia” for the first-at-sea rendition.
Norwegian Viva will also feature returning guest favourites, including “Improv @ Sea” Comedy Club; “Syd Norman’s Pour House,” which features rock-and-roll tributes to Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, and other legendary artists of the Classic Rock genre; and more.
