On September 11, 2001, in the wake of the attack on the United States, approximately 6700 confused airline passengers “dropped in for a bucket-o-tea and biccy (biscuit)”, according to the unruffled Gander mayor, and became unexpected guests of the 7,000 citizens of Gander, Newfoundland. Any other town would have been overwhelmed, not only by the sheer number of airline passengers and crews, but the extent of their needs and unspecified length of their stay.
This epic story of unrivaled hospitality, the power of human contact, and the spirit of community is captured in one of Broadway’s most uplifting and inspirational musicals COME FROM AWAY.
Ride the emotional rollercoaster with passengers of 38 jet planes as they are forced from the skies on the way to New York City – from anger and despair over not reaching their destination, to panic about what’s happened in the US and to whom. Feel the comforting arms of the Gander community, as the Canadians take it upon themselves to feed, clothe, provide lodging and entertain these global refugees.
Join Sunnyland Travel as we visit the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis for a quick trip to Gander and return to this spirited community.
Note: Theatre seating requires navigating 3-5 steps with handrails.
