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 and amazed audiences for more than 40 years.
Featuring an incredible cast and nine-piece band, this special 50th-anniversary presentation of TOMMY is produced by the creators of RAFT a rock opera, Pat Brown and Randall Robinson, who are thrilled to once again be working under the Theatre Kelowna banner to bring this classic to Okanagan audiences.
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.

Book by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff
