AS IT celebrates its 300th performance and 300,000th visitor in the UK, the Olivier Award-winning Come From Away has once again extended its run at the Phoenix Theatre, this time until May 23, 2020.

This joyous musical tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded air passengers during the wake of 9/11, and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed, and nerves ran high, but as uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.

To honour the kindness and stewardship shown by the people of Newfoundland, the London company of Come From Away has announced a partnership with homeless charity Centrepoint.

The partnership will include a gala performance on November 7, 2019, as well as members of the Come From Away team joining the Centrepoint ‘sleep-out’ on November 21, to raise awareness and vital funds for the charity’s good work.

The multi award-winning musical continues sold-out, record-breaking engagements on Broadway, in Canada, in Australia and on a 60-city North American Tour. It has recently been announced that a tour of China will commence in Shanghai from May 2020, and a feature film adaptation is in the works.

The cast of Come From Away in the West End includes Jenna Boyd (Beulah and others), Nathanael Campbell (Bob and others), Clive Carter (Claude and others), Mary Doherty (Bonnie and others), Robert Hands (Nick, Doug and others), Helen Hobson (Diane and others), Jonathan Andrew Hume (Kevin J, Ali and others), Harry Morrison (Oz and others), Emma Salvo (Janice and others), David Thaxton (Kevin T, Garth and others), Cat Simmons (Hannah and others) and Rachel Tucker (Beverley, Annette and others).
