Billy Elliot auditions in New York and Boston
Tuesday, November 7 2006

Who will play the title role in the Broadway production of Billy Elliot? Open auditions have been scheduled in New York City on November 11, 2006 and in Boston on November 18, 2006 to find boys ages 10 through 13 to play the roles of Billy and Michael in the award-winning musical hit.

Even if the perfect candidates are found, they'll face a lengthy wait for their big night on Broadway: Billy Elliot is not scheduled to open New York until the fall of 2008.

Based on the successful feature film, 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 the production to the Broadway stage is the original London creative team of Stephen Daldry (director), Elton John (music) and Lee Hall (book and lyrics). Daldry and Hall were also the creative team behind the film.
