    Come From Away is based on the true story of the townspeople of Gander, Newfoundland, that welcomed thousands of passengers from 38 different planes who had to land on the Gander air strip on the day of 9/11. While the fact remains they were all strangers to each other, with many different nationalities and troubles, this musical shows how all these people were part of one big global community that helps each other through hard times with music, song, dancing and more.
