Come From Away

Come From Away

Child and Family Agency and our Thames East Auxiliary invite you to join us on a bus trip to the Providence Performing Arts Center for a performance of the award-winning musical, Come From Away!

“A TRUE STORY.  To create Come From Away, writers Irene Sankjoff and David Hein collected hundreds of hours of interviews with the locals in Newfoundland, as well as the passengers who were stranded there during that fateful week.  There were 38 planes ordered to land unexpectedly in the small town of Gander.  These stories inspired this show, distilled into 100 minutes, and performed by a cast of 12 representing nearly 16,000 people.”

It has received the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical, Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical and Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
