Peter Townshend’s tale of a young boy’s journey from pain to triumph is the most electrifying evening of rock and roll ever to play in a theatre!
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.
Entr’Acte Theatrix is a brand new off-shoot of the Palm Beach Principal Players, part of our natural growth. When the Players started 10 years ago, our target company member was in high school or college, interested in musical theater, and with limited opportunities to perform. Now, in 2010, our company counts over 200 young people who have worked with us in over 16 productions, many of whom have gone on to professional careers or top educational programs. However, we recognize that there is still a need for these more “seasoned” performers to have the opportunity to work with the best professionals we can attact, and allow them to begin their professional careers with a solid base of work on their resumes, as well as the network and contacts our productions will offer them. This corp of “Emerging Professional Talent” will be the focus of the work that Entr’Acte does.
