Milly and Tom went to check out the opening night of Come From Away as it returned #BackOnStage last night at the Phoenix Theatre.

And, if the standing ovation is anything to go by, it was a roaring success! Check out this incredible video which has got us feeling ALL the goosebumps…

The four-time Olivier Award-winning musical is all about the real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers grounded in Canada after 9/11. When the stranded ‘come from aways’ are invited into the homes of the small Newfoundland community of Gander, a time of tensions and nerves is transformed into friendship.

The inspiring musical shows how hope, humanity and friendship can prevail in a time of crisis. Besides its heartwarming message, the showstopping songs will get you up on your feet and stomping along to the sounds of Newfoundland.

Follow Milly and Tom’s #BackOnStage experience in the video below!

If the above has got you feeling inspired, be sure to grab your tickets. And remember, Come From Away is a participating show in Kids Week 2021, which means you can get half-price family tickets for performances throughout August.
