Come from Away is coming home for the first time.
The Canadian musical tells the stories of the nearly 7,000 airline passengers who were redirected to Gander on September 11, 2001 and the community members who took them in.
Since its first showing the play has been met with critical acclaim in the United States and is even going to Broadway.
Newfoundland actor, Petrina Bromley will take the stage tomorrow when Come from Away makes its hometown debut and says the story is one that truly shows what it means to be a Newfoundlander.
She says people are really affected by Come From Away because it’s a story that needs to be told and one people need to hear because we’re living in a time of tension and dissent, and the play reaffirms that most people are good and just need the opportunity to show it.
The show plays at 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. at the Steele Community Centre on Saturday in Gander.
Meanwhile, there is now a GoFundMe campaign for a 9/11 monument in Gander.
Deputy Mayor Cyril Abbott told VOCM Nightline with Jonathan Richler what the monument will look like. It will be the tail fin of a plane with a bronze globe set into it, completely made of black granite and sitting on a mount with a piece of steel from the World Trade Centre embedded in it.
