Buckle in for an exciting ride

Come From Away is the winner of Best Musical awards right across North America and is currently enjoying a sellout season on Broadway.

So it’s safe to say it’s a must see for 2019. 

NOW the highly acclaimed musical is coming to Australia. And buckle in Melbourne, because you’re first in line. 

Come From Away takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of a small town in Newfoundland that welcomed nearly 7,000 strangers in the wake of 9/11. 

Following the 9/11 attacks, 38 planes and their 6,579 passengers were re-routed to Gander, a tiny town on the edge of the world.

Inspired by interviews with locals, Come From Away is about how hosting this international community of strangers spurred unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances. 

The musical is written by Tony Award nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein. 

Director Christopher Ashley won the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical for his work on the show. 

Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical and discover the remarkable true story of a small town that welcomed the world.

Premiering exclusively in Melbourne at the newly renovated Comedy Theatre from July 2019. Book now at comefromaway.com.au.
