The Tony® and Olivier Award winning musical Come From Away tells the remarkable true story of thousands of stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland, Canada that welcomed them all. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
At its core, Come From Away is a story of kindness and humanity. Your heartstrings will be played like a fiddle; you’ll be laughing, crying and tapping your feet. You’ll walk away with the songs playing over and over in your mind, bringing a smile to your face long after you leave the theatre.
Navigating a pandemic and copping the brunt of floods, hailstorms and cyclones – all in living memory – the people of Queensland are a resilient bunch. The cast of Come From Away agree, and they believe the musical, with themes of compassion, community and ‘coming together’, will resonate with local audiences.
