Colleen Hewett (b.1950) came from Bendigo in regional Victoria. Starting as a pop singer with local bands, she later branched out into acting and entertaining on stage, screen and radio. In the early 70s, for example, she was in the Australian cast of Godspell and recorded a hit version of Day By Day from that musical. More recently, Colleen played Peter Allen’s mother on stage in The Boy From Oz, starring Hugh Jackman.
