Todd McKenney, the original Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz, has decided that 766 performances is not enough.
He's reprising the role with The Production Company in Melbourne at the State Theatre from August 18 until 22.
Amanda Harrison, fresh from 18 months in the role of Elphaba in Wicked, plays Liza Minnelli. David Harris ( Chris in Miss Saigon) will play Greg.
Australian show biz legend Nancye Hayes directs this concert version.
This is the first fully professional production licensed by my company and I am honoured that Jeanne Pratt AC, Chairman of The Production Company, has described the season, including productions of Sugar and The King and I, as her "best yet."
If Todd needs a night off then some other boys might be tempted to head down to Melbourne to audition.
Adam Fischer ( pictured here with Justus Bacic-Johnston) from the Roo Theatre on the NSW South Coast almost needed an understudy. He severely twisted his ankle during the company's season last month.
He continued the run of the show with a discreet hobble.
Other 'Boys' will dance up a storm this year on the NSW Central Coast with the Gosford Musical Society, in the Newcastle Civic Theatre with the Metropolitan Players, in the A.C.T with the Canberra Philharmonic Society , Spotlight Theatre Gold Coast, The Port Macquarie Players, The Blacktown City Community Theatre in Sydney's west, and Don Hillam Entertainment Wagga Wagga.
