We are thrilled to share the casting information for the Washington production of Come From Away! Many in our cast have performed with the Come From Away company in their pre-D.C. iterations in San Diego and Seattle. We cannot wait for this talented bunch to begin rehearsals with us later this summer!

Come From Away tells the incredible true story of how one tiny Canadian town generously offered friendship, food and shelter to more than 6,500 strangers who were diverted there when U.S. airspace closed during 9/11. Come From Away honors the better angels of our nature, revealing humanity and hope in a time of darkness.
