Holiday Actors Presents The Boy From Oz

Are you ready to join Holiday Actors for their sensational 2019 Summer Production, THE BOY FROM OZ?

The Boy from Oz is a dazzling, fun and moving story that follows the life of legendary Australian entertainer Peter Allen. From a humble start, Peter was singing in country pubs at age 11. He survived family tragedy to become a teenage TV star. Discovered by Judy Garland, he married her daughter Liza Minnelli and went on to achieve international stardom as a performer and songwriter. The Boy from Oz will have you laughing, crying and dancing in the aisles! The musical includes many of Peter Allen’s best loved hits: Quiet PleaseThere’s A Lady On Stage; Not The Boy Next Door; Everything Old Is New Again; I Honestly Love You; I Still Call Australia Home; Tenterfield Saddler and the show-stopping I Go to Rio.

After our unforgettable staging of the Australasian Premiere of BIG FISH in 2016, HA is excited to welcome back Tyler Hess as Director who will be leading the team comprising of Guild winning choreographer, Emily Trigg.

The Boy From Oz Auditions Update

Thank you for taking the time to prepare and present your audition for Holiday Actors’ summer production, THE BOY FROM OZ! It has been a rigorous weekend of singing vocal excerpts from the show; presenting character songs; taking direction with dramatic readings and performing snapshots of exciting choreography from the show! We were overwhelmed with the talent showcased during the solo auditions by so many incredibly enthusiastic young performers auditioning to be part of the show. Our creative team are confident that they have discovered the perfect cast and are currently piecing together the puzzle of who will be bringing this spectacular production to life. As such, principal character call-backs have not been necessary.

All successful auditionees will be notified by email (as you have listed on your audition form) over the coming days, whilst those who have been unsuccessful this year will be notified by the end of this coming week. If you have not been cast in this year’s production, you are encouraged to seek feedback on ways to improve before your next audition.

Thank you for auditioning and best of luck!
