Welcome To The Rock
A Come From Away Podcast
Produced by Curtain Call
Welcome to the podcast series, “Welcome to the Rock!” A behind the curtain peek at what it takes to get a show from a seed of an idea all the way to a Broadway hit.
The international musical hit Come From Away tells the incredible real-life story of the passengers from all over the world that were grounded in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland in the wake of the events of 9/11. Gratitude grew into friendship, hope blossomed in the face of tragedy and a musical was written to celebrate the community created in an incredible time of need by both the Canadians and the Come From Aways.
In this episode, meet the real inhabitants of Gander and the Come From Away’s that you see on stage in the musical, including Captain Beverley Bass, Sheriff Oz Fudge and many more.
