We have three double passes to give away!
Performance is 7pm on Wednesday 20th January, 2021 at the Comedy Theatre in Melbourne’s East End Theatre District.
Competition closes on January 1st, 2021.
The Australian company will also be the first of the global productions of COME FROM AWAY to return to the stage, for a strictly limited season that must close on Sunday 21 March, prior to a national tour. A much-needed boon to the industry, the production will create 447 jobs, bringing many in the creative industry back to work for the first time since March.
The nine-week encore season is expected to attract over 90,000 visitors to the Comedy Theatre and provide substantial stimulus to the economy and the East End of Melbourne.
Now, more than ever, COME FROM AWAY is the perfect show for our time; an opportunity to come together and celebrate an inspirational story of hope and humanity.
Producer Rodney Rigby said “As the world collectively faces one of the greatest challenges in modern times, COME FROM AWAY reminds us that compassion is at the core of our humanity. This is a story about unity, and about acting with kindness regardless of our differences.”
After taking Melbourne by storm when it premiered in July 2019, COME FROM AWAY enjoyed nine months of critical acclaim and standing ovations, becoming the most successful production in the Comedy Theatre’s 91-year history, before it was forced to close early due to the threat of COVID-19.
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.
