Producers Rodney Rigby and Junkyard Dog Productions are pleased to announce that tickets for the rescheduled Sydney season of Come From Away are now on sale. The Tony and Olivier award-winning musical will commence performances at the Capitol Theatre from Thursday 3 June 2021.
Come From Away is the ground-breaking new musical based on the incredible real-life events in the wake of the September 11 tragedy when 38 planes carrying nearly 7,000 people from over 100 countries were redirected to Gander, Newfoundland, almost doubling the population of the remote Canadian town.
Capturing the generosity and hospitality of the small community of Gander who invited the “come from aways” into their homes, it is a timely and inspirational story of hope and humanity.
“At a time when our country and the world is facing unparalleled challenges, Come From Away is now more important than ever,” said Producer, Rodney Rigby. “It reminds us of our humanity through the extraordinary work of ordinary people. The good deeds and acts of kindness told in this uplifting and inspiring musical have brought people together across the world.
“We have been heartened by all the past Sydney ticketholders who have retained and transferred their tickets to our rescheduled season, and we are thrilled to now release a new round of seats to the general public,” Rigby added.
Come From Away will make its long awaited Sydney opening after a record breaking season in Melbourne, where it earned the title of the most successful musical ever in the Comedy Theatre’s 92-year history. It won critical and audience acclaim during its 9 month engagement and will return to the Comedy Theatre for a strictly limited encore season from Tuesday 16 February 2021.
