"The Who's Tommy", the rock and roll sensation from Pete Townshend and the famed band, is on stage at The Media Theatre each weekend now through August 9. With Friday evening shows at 7pm, Saturday performances at 2pm and 7pm, and Sundays at 3pm, State Street in Media will be home to the Pinball Wizard through most of the summer.

Garrison Carpenter, who recently appeared in the theatre's "Ghost: The Musical" is the title role, Tommy Walker. Young Tommy is deaf, blind, and mute due to several traumatic experiences in his life when he was a boy. Eventually becoming attuned to vibrations and percussion Tommy becomes a legendary pinball champion. His fame creates a few more issues before he overcomes his inability to feel emotion.
