Drama and Tech Gear Up for Tommy

At 77 pages, the script for Tommy is not the longest production the Judge Theatre Department has ever undertaken. However, it is certainly one of the most intensive. The entire rock-opera of Tommy, by The Who, is an almost unpausing collage of songs and dances. Together, they tell the story of Tommy, an english boy whose life is one of initial hardship and suffering, but then fortune, and finally the result of the two. While the entire show takes only about two hours, it never stops during that time except for an intermission, meaning lots of lines, lots of dance steps, and lots of room for error. Rehearsals for Tommy have already begun, promising a serious attempt at perfection and excellence and a wonderful show. Tommy will be performed on November 1-3 at 7 p.m. and a matinee on the 4th at 2:30 in the Judge auditorium.
