"Your heart can't help but be touched" - The Age

Growing up in post-war bucolic Armidale, Peter Allen stood out. He was a born performer with innate musical ability and a mischievous smile. His mother, Marion Woolnough (Rebecca Gibney), adored him but his father, Dick Woolnough (Nick Farnell), had little time for his son. After being discovered by superstar Judy Garland (Sigrid Thornton) while performing in a duo with Chris Bell (Rob Mills) called the Allen Brothers, Peter was suddenly on the road to Hollywood stardom. He soon reached mainstream audiences with the hit songs ‘I Go To Rio’, ‘Tenterfield Saddler’, and the unofficial Australian anthem ‘I Still Call Australia Home’.

Peter Allen: Not The Boy Next Door tells the rollercoaster story of the iconic Australian entertainer, Peter Allen, who went from being a childhood performer in country NSW to a Grammy and Academy Award-winning songwriter and the toast of Broadway, marrying into Hollywood royalty along the way.
