Winner of Best New Musical across the globe, Come From Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7k air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11.

7,000 Stranded Passengers. One Small Town. A Remarkable True Story.

This heartwarming production tells the true story of how the small Newfoundland community invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

Experience the joy, heartache and soaring music as the spirited locals and global passengers overcome their fears and a world of cultural differences to come together and forge friendships that will stay with them forever. The first female American Airlines captain, the quick-thinking town mayor, the mother of a New York firefighter and the eager local news reporter are among the many real characters caught at the start of the moment that changed the course of history, and whose stories became a true celebration of hope, humanity and unity.

Tony Award-winning director Christopher Ashley alongside Olivier Award winning writers Irene Sankoff and David Hein bring this amazing story to life in a life-affirming production that has audiences on their feet every single night.

Come on in. The door is open and the kettle is on.

Come From Away is 100 minutes with no interval. Recommended for ages 10+.
