The Boy From Oz is a musical biography/tribute to the late great Peter Allen. 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, and we look forward to staging it at Altona in July.
