Experience the rock n' roll sensation in
Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff's smash hit musical

A boy's journey from pain to triumph is a sensory-defying rock and roll
experience. Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who's
Tommy is an exhilarating story of hope, healing, and the human spirit. The
story of the pinball-playing, deaf, dumb, and blind boy who triumphs over his
adversities has inspired, amazed, and puzzled audiences for more than 40
years. This five-time Tony Award-winning musical was translated to the stage
by theatrical wizard, Des McAnuff, into a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical
event. After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother's lover by his
father, Tommy is traumatized into catatonia and, as the boy grows, he suffers
abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and neighbors. As an adolescent,
he's discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball and, when his
mother finally breaks through his catatonia, he becomes an international
pinball superstar. The Who's Tommy features an exhilarating score that has
made it a smash-hit around the world.

Playing September 7 - 30.

Did you know that the biggest hurdle any theatre company faces in producing stage
musicals is the cost? It is the make or break factor for any theatre group. Are we
ready each summer for the musical production challenge? Absolutely! Currently, we
are digging very deep to cover costs - however, we always need additional support.

We ask for your help in giving to the City Theatre summer musical.

Our goal? To raise $3000 to $4000 each summer that goes directly to the musical
for costumes, scenery, royalties and to pay performers, designers, and musicians.
These additional funds are imperative to the success of the production. Shows
including
Chicago, Little Shop of Horrors, Nunsense, Into the Woods, Hair,
Grease, Urinetown, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
and Cabaret have all benefited from this support.

We could not produce the show without people like you.
