The Orpheum Opera House proudly presents HaliTommy
Starring Steve Ralston (singer for Dr. Skankworthy) as Tommy.
We need a part for Erin Hennessey (she is, after all, already writing
an opera! Bet she can act.) It might be difficult to make Andrew Scott
spend that much time in Halifax- better think of an understudy.
