About the Show
The iconic Australian musical, The Boy from Oz, turns 20 in 2018, and to celebrate we’re staging a new production.
Rohan Browne, (Singin’ in The Rain, Brigadoon) stars as Peter Allen, and Caroline O’Connor (Funny Girl, Anastasia (Broadway) and The Rink (London)) returns to The Production Company for the role of Judy Garland.
This is the dazzling, funny and moving story of the legendary Australian entertainer Peter Allen. From a humble start, Peter was singing in country pubs at age 11. He survived family tragedy, to become a teenage TV star. Discovered by Judy Garland, he married her daughter Liza Minnelli and went on to achieve international stardom as a performer and song writer.
The Boy from Oz includes many of Peter Allen’s best loved hits: Quiet Please, There’s A Lady On Stage, Not the Boy Next Door, Everything Old is New Again, I Honestly Love You, I Still Call Australia Home, Tenterfield Saddler and the show-stopping I Go to Rio.
