We are thrilled to have secured a number of tickets to for this smash Broadway hit, which was just nominated for seven Tony Awards including Best New Musical. Come From Away  takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that put their lives on hold and opened their homes to this world of strangers. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
