You are invited to step aboard a dazzling "ocean liner" on June 30 for its first wartime journey across the Atlantic in 1918. At this seaworthy soiree, experience the thrill of an elegant, turn-of-the-century ocean voyage with rousing music, salty cocktails and fortifying wines, ports of call, dancing and dares, and on-board intrigue. Modern Gala: High Seas will sweep you away on a much-needed adventure, while also supporting the National WWI Museum and Memorial.


You will find the "ship" docked at Pickwick Plaza in downtown Kansas City on June 30, at 7 p.m.


Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of ocean liners refitted for military action in WWI, step aboard as a glamorous citizen on your way to Europe, or as a member of the gritty seafaring crew, or among the eager and brave sailors, soldiers, or nurses on the way to action, or as a local at a port of call. Bon Voyage!
