Since its debut on London’s West End in 2005, Billy Elliot has gone on to win multiple awards and dazzle audiences across the globe.
Wavestage Theatre Company’s version of the smash-hit musical will open in April 2018 and will be directed by Artistic Director Sarah Langford.
The ideal candidate to play Billy is an athletic, musical, energetic young man between 10-13 years old with a background in ballet. Acrobatics, tap and singing are considered definite assets. Non-equity.
