From 3 February 2022

The Canberra season of Come From Away has been rescheduled to February 2022 due to the ongoing uncertainty and disruptions created by COVID-19. We’ve contacted ticketholders with details. If you have any questions, please email CanberraTicketing@act.gov.au.

The worldwide smash hit, Tony and Olivier award-winning musical COME FROM AWAY, will play at Canberra Theatre Centre from 3 February 2022 for a strictly limited season.

Set to inspire audiences, COME FROM AWAY follows the incredible real-life journey of 7,000 air passengers who became grounded in Gander, Newfoundland in Canada in the wake of the September 11 tragedy. The small community that welcomed the ‘come from aways’ into their lives provided hope and compassion to those in need. Award-winning husband and wife duo David Hein and Irene Sankoff (book, music and lyrics), travelled to Newfoundland and interviewed thousands of locals, compiling their stories to share with the world. The Australian Company took Melbourne by storm in 2019, becoming the most successful musical ever staged at The Comedy Theatre and breaking all box office records. It marks the fifth production of the musical worldwide, joining international productions on Broadway, in Toronto, the West End and the US National Tour. In 2020, the musical added to its international award tally with five Green Room awards including Best Production and Best Ensemble. In 2019, along with being voted Ticketmaster’s ‘Ticket of the Year’ by Australian audiences, the musical won four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, Best Theatre Choreographer, Best Sound Design and Outstanding Achievement in Music, along with four Broadway World UK awards.  “It’s a beautiful show that will make you smile.” Sunday Telegraph “For once the hype is warranted: it turns out to be the most unlikely of commercial hits, a celebration of the power of community.”  The Guardian
