Based on the wildly successful feature film that captured hearts and minds worldwide, BILLY ELLIOT is the funny, heartwarming tale of a young boy with a dream, and a feel-good celebration of his triumph against the odds. Bringing this gripping tale to the stage are none other than the original creative team; director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall-together with music legend Elton John.


Director - Greg A. Beam

Choreography by Julia A. Vessey

Producers: Michael E. Conner and John K. Craft

Michael: Billy's careless and fun-loving best friend. He lives in the realm of expressing oneself, going so far as to commonly dress in women's clothing. Able to play 10-14 yr old male - B4 to A#3
