The Who's Tommy

Audiences packed Cowell Chapel on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to see The Who's Tommy; music and lyrics by Pete Townshend and book by Des McAnuff and Pete Townshend.

This classic rock opera, which debuted as a movie in 1975 and was theatrically staged in 1993, is based on The Who’s iconic 1969 rock concept album. The Who's Tommy is an invigorating story of hope and the human spirit that has astounded audiences for decades.

Cushing's production of Tommy featured creative sets, dazzling lighting cues, as well as an energetic pace that took the audience on an exciting and emotional journey. The cast featured players both new and familiar to the Cushing stage, notably three alumni, five faculty members, and two faculty children.

Thank you to our dedicated families for all of your contributions! Our fabulous raffle and bake sale between acts was a hit.

Special congratulations to our senior thespians on their final Cushing musical:
