Newcastle, Gosford & the boy from Oz.

Back in February 2008 in I wrote of singer Peter Allen in Peter Allen, Armidale and Claire and Eileen Napier - an attack of nostalgia. Now I have a conundrum that my Newcastle readers may be able to answer.

On 25 June, the Armidale Express reported on a visit to Armidale by members of the Gosford Musical Society investigating the singer's live in advance of a production of the Boy from Oz due to start a four week run in Gosford from 6 August.

Now I see from the Newcastle Herald that that there is to be a Newcastle production of the musical running from 4 to 14 August. Does this mean that we actually have two productions of the same musical at the same time in close proximity to each other?

Jim, the Newcastle show is by the Metropolitan Players so it is a different production to the Gosford Musical Society.

Thanks, Greg. So two productions of the one piece with New England connections. A richness!?.
