Blokelahoma! An Evening With Toby Francis
* March 29, 2019 Friday 8:00PM
Take an Australian bloke who grew up loving Broadway musicals and put him on the McCallum Theatre stage, and you have Blokelahoma!, an evening of the best Broadway and the land Down Under have to offer. Known to McCallum audiences as part of The TEN Tenors, Toby took a break from overseas touring to star as Charlie Price in the Australian production of Kinky Boots but now, he’s back in Palm Desert, bringing stories and songs about growing up red, white, and blue (but confused about which red, white, and blue it is!). A gifted producer, writer, and raconteur, Toby has been the sketch and writing partner to the legendary John Cleese, and producer of musicals including RENT and High Fidelity. Blokelahoma! is a show about what it means to balance a love of home with a love of away, featuring music from of the greatest songbooks Broadway and Australia.
