Some very exciting news to start the New Year! There are a few big changes with the show, the biggest one being that we are moving theatres. The show, which has played to sold out audiences for a year now, will be closing at the Royal Alexandra Theatre on January 20th and moving over to the Elgin Theatre starting February 5th, 2019! The most exciting part is that from January 20th to the 29th, the entire company of COME FROM AWAY, will be in St. John’s, Newfoundland to play a series of benefit concerts. The proceeds of these, already sold out, shows will be going to:
- The six towns that hosted the 7,000 stranded travellers who landed at Gander Airport after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York. These six communities are Gander, Gambo, Appleton, Lewisporte, Norris Arm and Glenwood.
- Autism Society of Newfoundland and Labrador.
- Community Food Sharing Association.
The cast and company is absolutely thrilled to have this opportunity to bring the show, in concert version, to the people of Newfoundland and give back to the wonderful communities there!
