The musical takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town of Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures crashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
DeKalb County Farm Bureau has tickets for “Come From Away” at the Cadillac Palace Theatre, Chicago, on Saturday, Aug. 17. A limited number of tickets are available to purchase beginning Monday, May 6.
The “Come From Away” story – On 9/11 the world stopped. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration makes the decision to shut down its airspace, forcing over 4,000 planes to land at the nearest airport. Inbound flights from Europe are diverted to Canada. Gander International Airport has 38 planes land there with more than 6,500 passengers and crew.
For a town like Gander with a population of 10,000 people, this was an extraordinary challenge to take on. Gander and neighboring towns welcomed “Come From Aways” into their homes, schools, churches, community centers and hearts.
