      All eyes will be on the silver ball in Thursday's (May 16) free
      �Pinballapalooza� in Toronto. Organized by the Stratford Festival to herald
      its new staging of �The Who�s Tommy,� the day-long event features an
      attempt to set a Guinness World Record when 100 pinball machines are played
      simultaneously at 12:40 p.m. Even if you�re not a pinball wizard, the 9
      a.m.-6 p.m. celebration at First Canadian Place offers games, ticket deals
      at a pop-up box office, and performances by �Tommy� cast members. The rock
      opera about a boy who becomes a pinball wizard despite being blind, deaf
      and unable to speak is the largest musical ever staged by the Festival.
      Using 21st century technology to enhance the visual �bells and whistles,�
      the production is led by Des McAnuff who co-created the rock opera with The
      Who�s Pete Townshend and directed the Tony Award winning Broadway
      production 20 years ago. The musical is part of the Festival�s 61st season
      of diverse repertory presented on four stages in Stratford, a city 2 hours
      west of Toronto. Visit www.

      information on tickets and performances of �Tommy� and other plays and
      musicals in the season that runs through Oct. 20. For information on May 16

      from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.
