Casting announced for 9/11 musical

Casting has been announced for Come From Away, a musical that tells the true story of 7,000 air passengers stranded in Canada during the wake of 9/11.

It will premiere in Dublin’s Abbey Theatre on December 6 for a seven-week run, before transferring to the Phoenix Theatre in London’s West End on January 30, 2019.

It tells the story of passengers stranded after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and the small town of Gander in Newfoundland that welcomed them.

The cast includes Jenna Boyd, Nathanael Campbell, Clive Carter, Mary Doherty, Robert Hands, Helen Hobson, Jonathan Andrew Hume, Harry Morrison, Emma Salvo, David Shannon, Cat Simmons, Rachel Tucker, Mark Dugdale, Bob Harms, Kiara Jay and Kirsty Malpass.

The multi-award-winning musical continues sold-out engagements on Broadway, and in Canada, with a 60-city North American tour recently launched in Seattle, an Australian production confirmed for summer 2019, and a feature film adaptation in the pipeline.
