“Many Ovation Award nominations await this spectacular production! Director, Michael Shepperd has out done himself. To stage a massive Broadway musical in a 55 seat theater is no small undertaking but the folks at Celebration have done it with flying colors. This production will most certainly garner them many Awards.The entire run will probably sell out soon. GO!” – Performing Arts LIVE
THE BOY FROM OZ was a huge Australian success that found its way to Broadway. Nominated for 5 Tony Awards in 2004, including Best Musical, and won Best Actor in a Musical (Hugh Jackman), the musical focuses on the extraordinary life of legendary singer/songwriter Peter Allen, from his birth in 1944 and humble beginnings to his meteoric rise to fame as an international star.
The story covers Peter's life and career in Australia and the United States, as well as his relationships with the legendary singing stars Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli.
Celebration Theatre at the Lex in association with Nicholas Caprio, Michael C. Kricfalusi, Todd Milliner and Jack Morrissey presents, under the artistic direction of Michael Matthews & Michael A. Shepperd, the West Coast premiere of THE BOY FROM OZ, music and lyrics by Peter Allen, book by Martin Sherman, original book by Nick Enright, choreography by Janet Roston, musical direction by Bryan Blaskie, produced by Andrew Carlberg and directed by Celebration Theatre co-artistic director Michael A. Shepperd.

The casting could not have been better. Andrew Bongiorno as Peter Allen, Bess Motta as Judy Garland and Jessica Pennington as Liza Minnelli are standouts in an amazing and hardworking cast. The music and lyrics by Peter Allen will bring back memories, have you dancing in your seat and bring a tear to your eye. Martin Sherman’s book keeps you engaged to the end and wanting more. The choreography and costumes are to a level that you would expect in a big Broadway production. Outstanding! The band is exceptional. Lighting, sound, scenic design, wigs and hair …. you get the drift – all exceptional. This production rivals the much awarded ‘The Color Purple’ that Celebration staged in 2012. Do not miss it. The entire run will probably sell out soon. GO!” – Performing Arts LIVE
