Travac Tours is pleased to announce that it will be offering a special program to see “Come From Away”, the award winning musical about Newfoundland’s generosity during the 9/11 crisis. The Shaw Festival will be featuring “Of Marriage and Men” on our July 16 departure and “Oh What a Lovely War’’ on our August 20th departure.
“Come from Away” is a Canadian story that literally moved the world. It is opening to the biggest advance ticket sales in Canadian theatre history. In fact, most spring and summer dates are sold.
Kelly Nestruck of The Globe and Mail wrote of “Come From Away” that “the heartwarming musical lives up to the hype” and that “the accessible story, strong emotional core and gorgeous songwriting should not distract from how original and smart this gem of a musical is”. Robert Cushman of the National Post called the production “outstanding.” Liz Braun of the Toronto Sun gave the show a perfect 5-star review.
Travac’s Shaw Festival and Come From Away Holiday is affordably priced at only $659.00 per person based on double occupancy + plus HST of $85.67. Total cost per person with HST is $744.67 .
