Wharton Center for Performing Arts is thrilled to announce the national tour of “Come From Away,” a Broadway musical about the true story of the small town that welcomed the world. “Come From Away” will make its Michigan debut at Wharton Center’s Cobb Great Hall for a limited engagement, September 10-15, 2019. 

Tickets go on sale to the general public Monday, July 29 at 10 a.m. at Wharton Center’s official ticketing outlets: online at, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office at Wharton Center, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON. 

“Come From Away” tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all. 

The touring production of “Come From Away” will star Kevin Carolan of Disney’s “Newsies,” Harter Clingman of “Peter and The Starcatcher,” Nick Duckart of “In the Heights,” Chamblee Ferguson, Becky Gulsvig of “School of Rock the Musical” and many more.
