Come From Away

January 28 - February 2, 2020 Des Moines Civic Center

The true story of the small town that welcomed the world. The New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!” ON 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

“After summer camp, she spent a lot of time developing plays with her friends. She was interested before, but now she thinks she’s a director and an actress and ... just anything.”

- Catherine, parent of second-grader Meg in Des Moines
