Welcome (back) to the rock! After this past summer's extremely successful inaugural run in Gander, Canada, Come From Away will return in Summer 2024.

Under the leadership of acclaimed local director Jillian Keiley and originating Come From Away producer Michael Rubinoff, the 2023 production of the Tony Award winning musical was an overwhelming success. All of the 37 shows sold out well in advance and Gander and area businesses saw a noticeable increase in activity from out of town traffic.

Come From Away has a history of success in Newfoundland and Labrador, beginning with the Come From Away concert series presented during Come Home 2022. The Premier Furey and the Provincial Government are in an effort to bring the Come From Away story to our residents and visitors, in celebration of the kindness and compassion shown to the ‘come from aways’ who were diverted to Gander and surrounding communities in September 2001. 

“It has been a dream from the beginning to create a production of Come From Away in Newfoundland and Labrador. Our inaugural sold out season hosted theatregoers from all over the world and received universal rave reviews. Audiences rose to their feet night after night, deeply moved by the power of this homegrown production. We look forward to continuing to share this inspiring story in the community where it unfolded.” said producer Michael Rubinoff

The original production of Come From Away ran from 2017 to 2022 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and was not only critically acclaimed but was nominated for seven Tony Awards. 

The production will run from June 28th, 2024 to September 1st, 2024 at the Joseph R Smallwood Arts & Culture Centre. Returning and new cast and band members will be announced in the upcoming year.
