This will be an epically fun night – a kitchen party, as performed by Broadway stars, in the warmth and intimacy of the Palace Saloon. (and still… pinch me!)
Come From Away is a story of great human kindness
(September 11, 2001, U.S. airspace closed, leaving thousands of passengers stranded. 7,000 landed in Gander, Newfoundland, a town of 9,000. The town took in the stranded travelers with legendary warmth and kindness.)
The musical celebrating this story has met with great success on Broadway.
Astrid Van Wieren who plays the central character Beulah, along with four musicians from the show’s fabulous band, including Fairbanks’ own Caitlin Warbelow, will perform music from Come From Away, complemented by some music from Broadway, some fiddle music and some traditional Newfoundland music.
An Alaskan Screech-In!
Come From Away features a Screech-in, a local ceremony indoctrinating “Come From Aways” (those not from Newfoundland) making them honorary locals. It involves shots of local rum (Screech), kissing a fish and eating some um local foods. Our performance concludes with an Alaskan Screech-In and Q&A.
Yes… come kiss a fish!
Cocktails and food will be served. (Beyond the Screech-In)
Why Monday? Because Broadway is dark on Mondays (so the Palace can be lit up!)
Our sincerest Thanks to Caitlin, Astrid, Associate Music Director Chris Ranney who are planning, creating the arrangements and rehearsing this very unique event in New York all for a single performance for FCA!!! (Did we say exclusive? Intimate? One time only? Broadway is coming to Fairbanks!!! did we say pinch me? because PINCH ME!!!)
Traditional Newfoundland food? Cod tongues, Brewis, scrunchions, Jigg’s dinner, salt beef, Toutons, and (seal) flipper pie. We’ll develop our own Alaskan versions.
Broadway is coming to Fairbanks!
