Do you have to know how to write in English to audition?

How old are you Benny?

I'm still having that recurring dream of being turned into a Billy while being filmed in rehearsals for a documentary about west end theatre. Sad, but you know, if you never have a dream...
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

'Theyre gonna give me a call'..

Oh, darling, they probably wont.

Ever heard of 'dont call us, we'll call you'.

*rolls eyes* How pathetic is it to be so harsh on a 13 year old? Grow up. But I digress... Benny good for you! Just the audition itself is a good experience. Best of luck re: I AUDITIONED 4 BILLY ELLIOT!

Isnt 13 a bit old for Billy, unless he's very young looking? Considering the enormous amount of time it takes to learn the show, any 13 year old successful at audition surely couldnt be in the show for long? I saw Liam last week, and whilst he was still fantastic in the role, but he was begginning to look a little bit too old in the role.

Also, if this kid (if he's even real) doesnt learn the realities of the business now, he'll come up against some real sh*t later in his career and he wont know how to cope with it.

'13 year old people shouldn't write like that!'

Wot about 15 then? That too old as well init? (eh, couldn't resist)

Congratulations benny, even for just auditioning. Auditions are well difficult, no matter what.

Good Luck Benny!!!

Billy Elliot is a fab show -even if you don't get the title role, you could always be one of the other kids - or they could refer you to another show!!!
