The first-ever UK and Ireland touring production of hit musical Come From Away has released a brand-new “Screech In” video.

The popular initiation tradition, depicted in the show itself, sees visitors to Gander kissing a cod to become “a true Newfoundlander”.

The multi-award-winning piece, which is based on the verbatim tales of those grounded in Newfoundland in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, has been recognised as one of the greatest musicals of all time by WhatsOnStage readers. It has had engagements in the West End, on Broadway, in Canada, throughout Australia, and on a 60-city North American tour.

The touring production was recently awarded the full five stars in our WhatsOnStage review by Tanyel Gumushan.
