The true story of seven thousand passengers trapped in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland.

This absolutely unbelievable true story of how the small town of Gander, Newfoundland, on a tiny island just off Canada ended up doubling their population overnight as 38 airplanes were forced to land in the aftermath of the September eleventh attacks. Book your tickets now for this Tony-Award winning Best Musical! Come From Away is written from first-hand experiences of some of those abandoned passengers.
Each performer onstage play at least two accents, some even more than three or four, smoothly interchanging them to signify a transition in character. In fact, some actors transpose their accents within the same lines of dialogue. The players assume an array of dialects, from that of a native Egyptian to a slow-speaking Texan and a fast-talking Newfoundlander. (Shout-out to the production’s dialect coach, Joel Goldes.) So come and see an emotional rollercoaster at the stunning Barbara B Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers for a night of true entertainment that will be unforgettable!
