To close its 13th season, Uptown Players will present the regional premiere of the 2003 Tony Award-winning musical, The Boy from Oz, created to celebrate the life and work of the legendary Peter Allen.

This is the dazzling, funny, and touching story of the great Australian entertainer Peter Allen that follows his humble beginnings in Australia to his meteoric rise to fame as an international star. Singing in country pubs from age 11, Allen survived family tragedy to become a local TV star at age 16.

Discovered by Judy Garland, he married her daughter, Liza Minnelli, and went on to become a beloved performer and an Oscar-winning songwriter. The Boy from Oz includes many of his best loved hits: "Everything Old is New Again," "I Honestly Love You," "Don’t Cry Out Loud," and the show-stopping "I Go to Rio."
