The show follows what happens when 38 planes and 6,579 passengers are forced to land in Gander, Newfoundland, doubling the population of "one small town on the edge of the world."

The musical stars Chad Kimball (Memphis), Jenn Colella (If/Then), Kendra Kassebaum (Wicked), Geno Carr (Allegiance), Joel Hatch (Annie), Rodney Hicks (The Scottsboro Boys), Lee MacDougall (The Wizard of Oz), Caesar Samayoa (Sister Act), Q. Smith (Mary Poppins), Sharon Wheatley (Avenue Q), Astrid Van Wieren (Mamma Mia!), Petrina Bromley (As You Like It), Josh Breckenridge (The Scottsboro Boys), Susan Dunstan (The Lion King), Tamika Lawrence (If/Then), and Tony LePage (Rock of Ages).
