Come From Away

Come From Away

The Global Phenomenon Comes to the Gold Coast

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.

Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® and Grammy nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by Tony® winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley with musical staging by Olivier Award winner Kelly Devine.

Newsweek cheers, ‘it takes you to a place you never want to leave!’

On 9/11 the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

Visit the official Come From Away website to find out more about the show.

A MUST-SEE! An unforgettably moving and touching story of the power of friendship and the human spirit.
EXTRAORDINARY! Transports us on a wave of hope.
A Hit and a Masterpiece.
