Boy From Oz performs at National Music Muster

The National Music Muster is excitedly anticipating the Australian production of The Boy From Oz, as the second major theatre act to appear at the annual event since its inception in 1982.

Following the outstanding success of the first on-site theatre production of Grease in 2007, the Music Muster will host another internationally renowned production, The Boy From Oz, on stage from the 27th to the 29th of August.

"The Muster is an incredibly diverse festival, each year there is a showcase of genres including blues, comedy, rock, and country but theatre brings a completely different element to the event," Marketing Coordinator Jarryd Townson said.

The energetic and lively presentation of the Boy From Oz showcases the life of extraordinary and flamboyant singer and dancer Peter Allen, through an array of glittered, sparkled and sequined costume designs. The show follows Peter's humble beginning in the great Australian bush to his rise to stardom as an international superstar living a life of fame and fortune.

Peter Allen is fondly known for his songs including, 'Don't Cry Out Loud', 'Everything Old Is New Again', 'I Honestly Love You', 'I Go To Rio', 'Tenterfield Saddler', and the beloved ballad, 'I Still Call Australia Home'.

Dale Pengelly, an internationally renowned musical/theatre cabaret performer played the understudy and lead of Peter Allen in the original Boy From Oz in 1998 and is taking the lead-role again, during the annual Music Muster this August in Amamoor.

He has a career that spans across national and internationally stages, holding principal and leading roles in over 22 productions such as Hello Dolly, Chicago the Musical, Singing in the Rain and more recently, in the acclaimed national tour of Saturday Night Fever and Shout.

Dale's talent as a singer and dancer has seen him not only have guest appearances in shows such as 'Hey, Hey It's Saturday', 'The Ray Martin Show' and 'TV Week Logies' but also become a principal dancer with the Queensland Ballet, the Sydney Dance Company and the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

Brian Sansom, Muster Coordinator said that the Boy From Oz would be an exciting act at the Muster and Muster patrons will need to secure their seats as soon as they purchase their Muster Tickets, to ensure they don't miss out.

The 2009 Muster is on from the 25th to the 30th of August at Amamoor Creek State Forest Park, for more information visit or phone (07) 5482 2099.
