(Relaxnews) – Hugh Jackman will be bringing his life to the stage in a new musical that traces his journey from the Australian Outback to Tinseltown.

“Broadway To Oz” will hit arenas in five major cities in his native Australia and feature a mix of medleys the actor has performed throughout his career.

Jackman and his production group, The Dainty Group, announced the news on Twitter.

Based on Jackman’s Broadway hit “Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway,” watch out for nods to “The Boy from Oz,” “Les Miserables,” and even his stint as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise.

The production will be backed by 150 singers, musicians, dancers and actors.

Tickets go on sale Monday, Aug. 31. Shows will be performed across Australia in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide beginning Nov. 24.
