BWW Exclusive: Kristin Chenoweth's 2013 Sold-Out Australian Tour Scrapbook!Just back in town from Kristin Chenoweth's sold out, uber-successful, first ever Australian concert tour, we asked Kristin and her cast to send us snapshots and memories from their trip.

The tour kicked off at The Adelaide Cabaret Festival on June 8th and played two sold out shows and then went on to play to sold out crowds at Hammer Hall in Melbourne on June 11th, Queensland Performing Arts Center in Brisbane on June 14th and then finished out the tour in famed Sydney Opera House on June 17th. The Sydney Opera House concert was not only sold out, but, the audience stamped their feet demanding more, bringing Chenoweth out for additional encores!

The tour was directed by Richard Jay-Alexander with musical direction by Mary-Mitchell Campbell, choreography by Tyler Hanes, sound and lights by Matt Berman, stage manager Rocky Noel, and featuring special material written by Sharon Wheatley (performed by the now infamous Avenue Q members of her show - Lucy T. Slut and The Bad Idea Bears). The cast included Will Taylor, Constantine Germanacos and Jennifer Diamond. Rounding out the touring family were Australian musicians Pete Skelton (drums), Alana Dawes (double base) and Colin Elmer (guitar). Also on tour was the irreplaceable Julie Trussell, KC's right hand gal.

Check out the KC touring family's exclusive photos below, including a trip to Lone Pine, where they held koalas and befriended kangaroos!

Also, take note, it was a personal dream of Kristin's to play The Sydney Opera House and they already want her back!
