The Boy from Oz is the musical biography and 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 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.

The Boy from Oz features many of Peter Allen's hit songs including "Tenterfield Saddler", "I Honestly Love You", "Don't Cry Out Loud", "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)", "I Go to Rio" and "I Still Call Australia Home".

The Boy from Oz 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."
