Lake Tuggeranong College and the Lakeside Players present The Who’s ‘Tommy’, a rock musical by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff.
Tommy is psychosomatically deaf dumb and blind. As a small child, he accidentally witnessed the murder of his stepfather by his father. His mother and father told him to forget everything he had seen and heard, and to never talk about it; but Tommy carried it to the extreme, turned inward, and stopped seeing, hearing or speaking at all. He suffered much while growing up, and finally found happiness in, of all things, playing pinball. When he became the world champion pinball player it brought him fame and fortune. After being spontaneously healed, he began to teach others of his unique perspective on life, eventually becoming a religious cult figure.
