In June last year Billy Elliot in London was down to one Billy. Ollie Gardner performed 6 times that week and to give him a break they brought Fox Jackson-Keen in to perform the Saturday matinee show and he had left the show 2 months previously. For the Saturday evening show they had Aaron Watson as stand-by and he had not even started then.

I have to agree with Geridith. I have been fortunate to see 16 boys play Billy. Whilst it is always sad when I see one leave the show it is also exciting to see the new Billys taking the first step on their wonderful journey.

None of the casts' accents are quite right. If they were nobody would understand a word they were saying. The North East of England accent is difficult for the English to understand so, not wishing to sound disrespctful, Americans wouldn't have a clue what they were saying. For that reason all the accents have been softened.

Was there no announcement before the show started? For Tanner Pflueger's last night, in London on Sept 26th, Stephen Daldry came on stage before the start and gave a very emotional speech about Tanner and explained that it was his farewell show.
