Opening Friday, March 31, to send March out with a bang, The Beacon Players present TOMMY on Friday and Saturday nights at 7 pm, with a Sunday matinee at 2 pm. Once again, the students of different departments in the Beacon High School have worked together to put on a fantastical show (see more about their work on a past production of Peter Pan). "[When the show opens], our canvas will be full of bright lights, rocking music and an amazing journey you won't want to miss!"
"Pinball Wizard" will be performed in its full version, along with several other favorites from The Who's rock opera, which first opened in 1969, and tells the story of a deaf, dumb and blind boy and his relationship with his family.
The costume crew - comprised entirely of students - stitched three decades' worth of outfits. So it's not just the student performers who get experience in the school performance, but all of the departments creating the rest of the show that goes on around the stage - the costumes, the set, the lighting, the sound, and much more.
While practicing the musical number "See Me, Feel Me," the crew running the Beacon Players' Instagram account broke into song, which we will leave you with here, in our city at the base of Mt. Beacon.
Gazing at you, I get the heat.
Following you, I climb the mountain.
I get excitement at your feet.
