This is a Playlovers production and will be staged at Hackett Hall, Floreat.
The Boy From Oz is a musical biography/tribute to the late great Peter Allen and the first Australian musical to make it to Broadway.
Peter Allen was born in the outback Australian town of Tenterfield in 1944 and made his entertainment debut at the age of five. As a teenager he became a pop star and then toured Asia, where he met Judy Garland and become engaged to her daughter, Liza Minnelli. In the US, Peter enjoyed the highs of success by winning an Oscar, selling out performances in Radio City Music Hall, and receiving adulation when he returned to Australia. There were also plenty of lows … breaking up with his wife, staging a Broadway flop, the death of his partner and his own battle with illness. Peter Allen had an extraordinary life which has become a magnificent musical.
The show includes a company of approximately 30. This will include principals, a variety of supporting characters and a large chorus. The supporting characters are a mix of minor leads and cameos and will also be a part of the chorus.
Dancers who do not sing may be considered for a small dancing chorus. However, members of the chorus will be required to have some level of movement or dance ability.
