Todd McKenney National Tour

Back to Events

Event Description

He is the originator of the ultimate Peter Allen portrayal and that’s why one of Australia’s most versatile and critically acclaimed performers, Todd McKenney is returning to the stage with a brand new show “Songs and Stories of Peter Allen”, a live national concert tour from October to December 2012.  Tickets go on sale tomorrow – Friday 25 May.


The two hour extravaganza featuring an eight piece band, singers and dancers is a brand new show and a different take on Allen’s life and career that will showcase the classics, some new songs and untold stories of McKenney’s time in Peter Allens sequins. This is a very personal show with an emphasis on outrageous fun.


Currently on stage with Annie The Musical and on Channel 7 as the controversial Dancing With the Stars judge, McKenney trained from the age of three in jazz, tap, acrobatics and ballroom dancing and first performed the role of Peter Allen in “The Boy From Oz” in 1998. Following nearly 800 shows to over 1.2 million people McKenney made it one of Australia’s most successful musical theatre productions and became a household name earning himself two Mo Awards, the Variety Club Heart Award, the Glugg Award, the Green Room Award, the Australian Dance Award and two coveted Helpmann Awards.


Todd reprised the role of Peter Allen in The Production Company’s production of The Boy From Oz in 2010 and 2011. There is an uncanny synergy between McKenney and Allen, much of which will be revealed within the show. Allen in fact had woven in and out of Todd’s life in his younger years, and has remained a constant inspiration and influence to this day.  “To be totally honest I feel like I have been living with Peter Allen since 1998 and we get on really well.  I love the man and I love his music,” says McKenney.
