Seattle G&S is excited to announce an electrifying new staging of the legendary British rock opera:

    An incredible journey, like you've never seen it before...

The Who's trailblazing rock opera bursts to life as an all-star cast and creative team, led by G&S Artistic Director Phil Lacey and Music Director Brandon Peck, create a vibrant new production that brings TOMMY into the 21st century with electrifying force.

The well-known story of the deaf, dumb, and blind boy who becomes a pinball sensation has inspired people around the world, and will now be the flagship contemporary show of The Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society's summer season!

Staged in the intimate Studio Theatre in the new 12th Avenue Arts space on Capitol Hill, this production of TOMMY will keep all the energy and excitement of The Who's concept album while telling a story that expands the world of the show. Freed to expand beyond the original story of a white boy in 1970s England --

This TOMMY is a story that reaches across genders, across ethnicities, across
preconceived ideas and prejudice to unleash the SENSATION in all of us.
We invite our entire community into a story where everyone is welcome and all have
the right
to see and be seen, touch and be touched, heal and be healed.
