You’ll laugh and you might cry, but either way you’ll certainly be entertained by one of the nation’s best loved performers. McKenney started dancing at the age of three, however, it wasn’t until he landed the role of Peter Allen in The Boy from Oz 14 years ago that he found his true passion.

Todd became a household name after taking on the role of iconic Aussie performer Peter Allen in the original 1998 Production of The Boy from Oz.  Now he’s set to reprise that role with a bit of a twist. He’s as fit as he’s ever been and matches Peter’s own amazing energy through out the show.

The show is not just Peter Allen’s hits. Todd also includes songs from some of his earlier musical theatre performances and you’ll hear stories and anecdotes of Peter, as well as all the goss from Dancing with the Stars.

Got a question?   Call it out during the show and Todd will likely answer you back!  But here’s a fun warning to be careful as he can give as well as he gets!

You’re most welcome to score Todd’s performance, too. In fact why not bring your score cards with you? But please do be kind.

Todd will perform in Bendigo, Mildura, Melbourne, Ballarat, Wagga, Dubbo, Port Macquarie, Newcastle, Sydney, Bathurst, Warrnambool, and Frankston. For tickets and more information, visit
