The Tokyo International Players invite you to enjoy their production of the musical “Tommy” (by Pete Townshend and directed by Jonah Hagans) from May 17th-20th at Nakano Pocket Square「THE POCKET」. There will be five performances in total over four days.
Description of the play
“After witnessing an accidental murder, young Tommy loses the ability to see, hear and speak. His family struggles to raise him until they discover an unexpected skill that will propel him to fame, fortune, and ultimately into a religious figurehead. Populated with colorful characters and a large ensemble, this rock and roll musical ride is thrilling and uplifting, and at times, dark and disturbing.”
The Tokyo International Players (TIP) was founded in 1896. Its members have mainly been made up of talent from the Tokyo foreign community, but Japanese cast members and supporting staff have also played key roles.
The organization, 100% volunteer-run, provides quality English-language entertainment for international audiences. Over its long history, many active members have appeared in professional theatre in Japan and abroad.
TIP is always looking for new on-stage talent, directors, designers, and backstage crew, as well as people to support their various front-of-house, fundraising, and promotional activities. They consider enthusiasm, energy, and a fun-loving nature to be more important than experience.
