The Boy From Oz

17th - 19th/22nd - 26th October, 2024

The Boy From Oz is the most successful Australian musical ever and the first to make it to Broadway.  It is a musical biography/tribute to the late, great Peter Allen.  Peter Allen was born in the outback Australian town of Tenterfield in 1944.  He made his entertainment debut at the age of 5 impersonating Al Jolson.  As a teenager he became a pop star and then toured Asia.  There he met Judy Garland who took him to London where he met and became engaged to her daughter Liza Minnelli.  In the US Peter enjoyed the heights of success by winning an Oscar, selling out performances in Radio City Music Call 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 producer Ben Gannon realised had the potential to become a magnificent musical and, with Robert Fox, they turned it into the smash hit it became.

The Boy From Oz is a class above all other ‘jukebox’ musicals.  The late Nick Enright skillfully wove his plot around the life and complexities of Peter Allen.  The songs and lyrics sit easily with the rhythm of the piece and with the characters as they enter and re-enter his life, be they dead or alive.  It leaps, as does Peter himself from past to present and back to past all within the familiar context of one of his energy-packed concerts.

The Addams Family - What a show!

“The ecstatic reception the cast received at the end of the opening night performance of The Addams Family: A New Musical Comedy (which incidentally opened on Broadway in 2010) shows how a really well written musical comedy can last for a long time. The performance was energetic, engaging and a showcase for some established and new Adelaide community theatre performers.”
