Abstract

For our 10 year anniversary, UMMTA will be presenting The Who’s Tommy! for our  first semester production.

Synopsis:

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.

Presented by the University of Melbourne Music Theatre Association
