Author SaadiqahSaadiqah, March 9th, 2023

Homecoming production is returning to Newfoundland and Labrador.

Calling all Come From Away fans! The musical is back and the original cast are reuniting just for you. The Tony-nominated musical written by Irene Sankofff and David Hein is planning to run from July 7, wrapping up September 3 at Joseph R Smallwood Arts & Culture Centre in Gander. The cast will be starring Broadway's own, Petrina Bromley as Beverly & Others, and Astrid Van Wieren as Diane & Others. Joining them, from the US, Canada tour Clint Butler, Kate Etienne and West ends Stuart Hickey. Newfoundland and Labradorians Ryan Alexander, Peter Halley, Jacquelyn French, Shelley Neville, Tim Matson and Alison Woolbridge. Tyler Belo, Maiesha McQueen, Michael Tornotow and Bridget Bezanson complete the cast.

What is Come From Away about?

On September 11th, 2001, as the full horror of the terror attacks became apparent, the US closed its airspace, grounding thousands of passenger jets. 38 of them were forced to land in Gander, a remote Newfoundland town with a population of just 9000 people.

Come From Away focuses on a set of passengers from one plane and the Gander residents who welcomed them into their homes. Amongst this diverse set of characters is American Airlines' first female pilot, a gay couple both called Kevin, and an Egyptian chef, whose initial apprehensions about the reception he will receive proves unfounded. Weaving together all of their storylines, the show creates an affirming portrait of human connection in the most trying of circumstances.
