OPENS FRIDAY 30TH JAN
With a huge set, a some brilliant musicians and a simply stunning cast, superb Burdekin Singers production of The Boy From Oz opens at the Burdekin Theatre on Friday 30th January for a strictly limited 6-performance season.
This colourful musical biography/tribute to the late, great singer/songwriter Peter Allen has been hit all over Australia and was the first Australian musical to make it to Broadway.
Peter Allen was born in Tenterfield NSW in 1944 and debuted in the entertainment industry at the age of five. As a teenager he became a pop star, made it to television and then toured Asia, where he met Judy Garland and eventually married her daughter Liza Minnelli. He went on to become the darling of New York with a string of hits, selling out performances in Radio City Music Hall, and taking out an Oscar for the movie Arthur before returning to adulation in Australia as our very own home-grown Broadway star.
His words are iconic, his music is infectious and his star forever illuminating our lives.
But there were also plenty of lows … breaking up with Liza, staging a Broadway flop, the death of his partner and battle with the illness that finally saw his own demise in 1992 at the age of just 48.
Peter Allen had an extraordinary life and remains an iconic figure to this day and The Boy from Oz is both history and his story all told in music, song and dance.. With a cast that includes Kevin Wright as Peter Allen, Ricki Romeo as his long-term partner, a strong chorus and some wonderfully slick choreography, all under the guidance of director Pat Nuttall and the musical direction of Monica Liciardello, this truly stunning show promises to be one of the standouts at the Burdekin Theatre in 2015.
Songs like Tenterfield Saddler, I Still Call Australia Home and I Go to Rio will see you humming and dancing all the way home! Don’t miss it !
Prices range from $22.50 to $35
