Book by Townshend and Des McAnuff based on The Who’s 1969 rock opera Tommy.

Bill Georges, director

Liz Hoefner Adamis, choreographer

Anthony Moreno, musical director

Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who’s Tommy tells the story of a young boy who triumphs over his adversities. After witnessing a violent murder as a child, traumatized Tommy slips into a catatonic state, rendering him deaf, mute and blind. As his existence wears on, he’s abused by sadistic relatives and neighbors – but an uncanny knack for the game of pinball saves his life. He rises to international superstardom, and inspires people all over the world. This five-time Tony Award-winning show featuring music and lyrics by Pete Townshend is exhilarating and has cross-generational appeal with its stirring story of hope, healing and the human spirit. Now you can hear, see and feel the phenomenon when El Camino College brings this exhilarating production to life.
