Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society presents The Who's Tommy

The Who's trailblazing rock opera Tommy bursts to life as an all-star cast and creative team led by Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society Artistic Director Phil Lacey and music director Brandon Peck create a vibrant new concept that brings Tommy into the 21st century with electrifying force.

The cast features Nastacia Nicole Guimont as Captain Walker (Legend of Georgia McBride at ACT, Milk Like Sugar at ArtsWest), Tori Spero as Mrs. Walker (Gregory Award for People's Choice of Outstanding Actress in Parade with Sound Theatre Company), and Jeff Orton as the Acid Queen (Parade at Sound Theatre Company, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson at ArtsWest, Altar Boys at Seattle Musical Theatre).

The role of Tommy will be shared by three performers - Varsha Raghavan, Emily Welter, and Garrett Dill - working together to create a complex, multifaceted protagonist. And the two young Tommys will be played by Vivienne Ridao and Fiona Alhadeff.

Freed to expand beyond the original story of a 'deaf, dumb, and blind' white boy in 1970s England -- this Tommy is a story that reaches across genders, ethnicities, preconceived ideas, and prejudice to unleash the sensation in all of us.

'This show is a journey towards healing,' explains director Phil Lacey. 'We dive deeply into the cycles of violence that in one way or another affect us all, and - through the power of presence, forgiveness, and definitely some pinball and rock 'n roll - look for a glimpse of hope. Maybe not a definitive answer, but at least a starting point where some of these hurts can begin to heal.'

Brandon Peck whose credits include The Pajama Game (Rising Star Project) at the 5th Avenue Theatre, 9 to 5 at Seattle Musical Theatre, and many other local credits, is excited to be part of this creative team. He received a Broadway World Award for Music Direction for his work on Jesus Christ Superstar at Seattle Musical Theatre, and a Gypsy Rose Lee Award nomination for music direction on Toxic Avenger with StageRight.

'The musical talent of this team in the smaller 12th Avenue Arts venue will immerse you with the experience to feel what's being sung and felt right along with the performers,' says Peck.

The artistic team includes McKenzie Baird (Choreographer), Margaret Toomey (Scenic Design), Ahren Buhmann (Lighting & Video Design), and Emily Woods Hogue (Costume Design).

The Who's Tommy has a history in Seattle. First produced by Seattle Opera in 1971, few companies in the Puget Sound area have taken on this challenging contemporary piece. Fresh off successful reviews of Patience, Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society looks forward to wowing audiences with a stunning production in the more intimate setting of 12th Ave Arts.

Tommy runs August 16 to September 1 at 12th Avenue Arts (1620 12th Ave.) More information and tickets at: https://seattlegilbertandsullivan.com/the-whos-tommy/
