Clove & Anchor Entertainment and Sooke Harbour Players present

A showcase and music preview night with the cast and musicians from the upcoming SHP production of The Who's Tommy, with Stephen J. Horak as Musical Director. Stephen performs in local bands The Laundronauts and RADco, and this is his second show with SHP.

The Who's Tommy is a rock musical by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff based on The Who's 1969 double album rock opera Tommy, and includes the classics “See Me, Feel Me”, “I’m Free”, “Go To The Mirror” and “Pinball Wizard”. The performance will feature the twenty-one original album songs plus selections from the musical sung by the Sooke Harbour Players cast members.

"After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother's lover by his father, young Tommy is so traumatized that he loses his ability to speak or to care about life. As his life meanders on in post World War II England, he suffers abuse from sadistic relatives and neighbors. Tommy's life is saved, however, when he falls in love with pinball. He becomes such an expert at the game that he rises to the stature of an international superstar and inspires youth around the world."

We will be blasting off the night with a Who tribute set, based on The Who’s live sets from that period. Special guest performers TBA.
