Award-winning musical COME FROM AWAY will resume its highly anticipated five-week season at QPAC’s Lyric Theatre this Tuesday 6th April (until 9th May).
Producer, Rodney Rigby said, “The health, safety and well-being of our staff, artists, audiences and our community is always at the heart of our decision-making processes. As we move forward out of the short lockdown this continues to be paramount and we are thrilled to be back on stage from Tuesday.
“COME FROM AWAY, at its core, is a story of kindness and humanity and we as a company feel so grateful to be able to share such a story in these times, particularly as we are the only one of five COME FROM AWAY companies worldwide to be back on stage.”
“You’ll be laughing, crying, tapping your feet, and singing all night long! A must-see musical”
