Peter Allen is on his way!


A WORLD premiere musical is on its way to Tyalgum.

The most intimate secrets and vibrant scenes of the extraordinary life of Australian songwriter and entertainer Peter Allen will be presented by singer and pianist Robert Bertram.

The musical, The Lives of Me: Untold Peter Allen Stories, was written by Bryce Hallett and will premiere at the Tyalgum Hall on Saturday, October 29 before its national tour.

Tyalgum resident Solar Chapel said the quaint town was no stranger to creative genius.

“Tyalgum Hall has showcased many of Australia’s best performers,” Mr Chapel said.

“Each year the Tyalgum Festival of Classical Music brings some of Australia’s finest musicians together in September.

“The Lives of Me will be another fabulous event not to be missed.”

Mr Chapel said Bertram would present Allen’s most famous songs including Tenterfield Saddler, Don’t Cry Out Loud, I Go To Rio and Once Before I Go.

“This is a fun and heart-warming show charting the onstage and backstage adventures of Australia’s compulsive showman,” he said.

The show begins at 7.30pm at Tyalgum Hall and dinner is available from 5.30.
