The line-up has been set for the 2012-2013 season for Bainbridge Performing Arts.

The season starts with “Tommy,” the famed rock opera written by The Who, Oct. 12 through Oct. 28. The show will be directed by Teresa Thuman.

BPA will then present Lisa Mandelkorn’s brilliant new translation of Engelbert Humperdinck’s wildly popular fairy tale opera “Hansel and Gretel” from Dec. 7 through Dec. 23.

“The 25th annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” runs Feb. 8 through Feb. 17, and will be followed by Lisa Loomer’s witty and thoughtful comic drama “Distracted,” March 8 through March 24.

BPA’s Theatre Season concludes with “A Chorus Line,” coming May 10 through May 26.

BPA is celebrating its 20th year at Town Square, and the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra is also reaching a significant milestone this year with its 40th anniversary season. Performances for the orchestra’s 2012-2013 four-concert season include “Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony” on Nov. 10 and Nov. 11, “The Grand and the Pastoral” on Feb. 23 and Feb. 24, “New! Pops Special: Orchestra Comique” on April 20 and April 21, and “Symphonic Metomorphosis” on May 31 and June 2.

The orchestra will also host its first-annual gala, “Savor the Symphony,” on Nov. 17.
