About the Show
When I get my name in LIGHTS
FRC is pleased to present the Canadian Premiere of The Boy From Oz, the most successful Australian musical ever and the first to make it to Broadway! The Boy From Oz is an exciting and riveting telling of the beautiful and tragic Peter Allen. From his humble origins in Tenterfield, Australia to his gigantic career in New York City, we follow Peter as he learns the ropes of fame and success and all the people who will help and hinder the journey. We are introduced to the variety of characters who helped shaped his voice, including Judy Garland and her daughter, Liza Minelli. The show features classic hits by Allen such as "I Go To Rio", "Bi-Coastal", "Everything Old Is New Again", and "Not the Boy Next Door". The Boy From Oz is a show for anyone who has chased their dreams, and have found themselves along the way. It celebrates Peter Allen's singular voice and persona in a musical about love, loss, and looking fabulous during it all.
January 17th - February 1st, 2020, Beddington Theatre Arts Centre
PLEASE NOTE: For the week prior to opening (beginning Sunday January 12th), please expect a rehearsal or other activity on each day.
We have a small budget to rent musical instruments for rehearsal and performance purposes. Please ask about that if you play but currently don't own your instrument.
Rehearsals will most probably be on Friday or Sunday evenings, but we will figure out the best day once we have assembled the orchestra and had a chance to check everyone's availability.
The rehearsals will definitely NOT be on Tuesday or Thursday evenings
