It is split into nine lessons. Lessons 1-6 can be used pre or post-show, and do not have to be taught in this order.

Lessons 7- 9 are for use after seeing the show as they refer to characters and script from the production. Lesson 9 is also a show evaluation lesson.

All lessons are supported by the Student Background Pack which we recommend reading with students before you start the scheme of work.

About Come From Away.

Matilda The Musical Logo

Winner of 4 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, Come From Away has taken the West End by storm.

Playing to nightly standing ovations at London’s Phoenix Theatre, Come From Away also continues sold-out, record-breaking engagements on Broadway, across the USA, in Canada, and in Australia.

This joyous new musical shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

As uneasiness turned into trust and music soared into the night, gratitude grew into friendships and their stories became a celebration of hope, humanity, and unity.

Awarded the Tony® for Best Direction of a Musical, Christopher Ashley’s production guides audiences through a colourful and spirited cast of characters, brought to life by Tony® and Grammy® nominated writing team Irene Sankoff and David Hein.
