The Who's Tommy

Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, our summer youth musical is an exhilarating story of hope, healing, and the human spirit.

After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother’s lover by his father, Tommy is traumatized into catatonia and, as the boy grows, he suffers abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and neighbors. As an adolescent, he’s discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball and, when his mother finally breaks through his catatonia, he becomes an international pinball superstar.

Additional time info:

The Broadview Heights Spotlights Theater is proud to announce the opening of its new theater addition with the annual youth production, The Who’s Tommy.

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place at 6:00 PM on June 20th, just prior to the show. Mayor Sam Alai, Service Director Dave Schroedel, Economic Director Kristina Sorensen, and the Spotlights Education Director Tim Anderson will join the theater Board of Trustees for this long-awaited opening ceremony. There will be an Hors D’oeuvres Reception sponsored by The Locker Room in the lobby immediately following the Ribbon Cutting. All are welcome to attend the ceremony and reception.

The theater addition has been a collaborative effort between the City and the Spotlights Theater. The building is 3200 square feet, has 12′ ceilings, and will have storage on both ends. It will be a “black-box” venue – the stage and seating will move to different locations within the building depending upon the needs of the show. The addition will be able to seat about 175 people, though most shows will require only 90-100. The existing theater will continue to be used for smaller productions requiring half that many seats.

* Event durations (if noted) are approximate. Please check with the presenting organization or venue to confirm start times and duration.
