"A hit and a masterpiece! Joyous, uplifting and plenty of humour." - Herald Sun

The Tony and Olivier Award winning hit musical has welcomed the world since it opened, so wherever you’re from, the door’s open – come on in.

Come From Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

Awarded the Tony® for Best Direction of a Musical, Christopher Ashley’s production guides audiences through a colourful and spirited cast of characters, brought to life by Olivier Award winning writing team Irene Sankoff and David Hein.

Come From Away runs for 100 minutes with no interval.

You'll laugh, cry, and leave the theatre full of hope!
