Our Blended Come From Away

In This Episode

We’re back! What have we been up to since our last episode? Like most performing arts companies, we recently weathered a surge of the Omicron Variant of Covid-19 that required some inventive staffing. This resulted in a temporarily blended company, which included cast members from our extended Come From Away community. Listen in as Christine and Jenny chat with James Kall (from the Toronto company) and Happy McPartlin (from the Broadway company) who both got surprise phone calls asking them to fly out to join our ranks in Minneapolis. Production Stage Manager Shawn Pennington also weighs in on what it was like to keep the show running with a stage full of performers representing every international company of Come From Away.
