Do You Know the Next Billy Elliot?

Auditions in a range of UK cities have been announced to find boy performers to play Billy and his friend Michael in the musical Billy Elliot.

Successful youngsters will get the chance to tread the boards in the West End show, which is at the Victoria Palace Theatre, London.

According to show organisers, auditions will take place in Leeds on January 11th, then Nestcastle (February 1st), London (March 15th), Bristol (April 26th) and Manchester (May 17th).

The team audition boys between the ages of nine and 13 for Billy and Michael.

The show's online audition information explains that they must be no taller than five ft and have unbroken voices to play the part - it's good to have experience in ballet and tap dancing.

Auditionees are advised to dress comfortably and take trainers and dance shoes to their audition.

These can be arranged through Jessica Roane, children's casting director, via People are asked to say where and when they wish to attend an audition in the subject line of the email.

In Newcastle, the team will also look for nine to 12 year old girls who could take on the role of Debbie. This part must be played by someone from England's North East, with the team looking for girls with some experience of ballet.

As well as Billy Elliot, on theatre breaks to London you could take in shows like Matilda, Les Miserables and more! The city really is a theatrical hot spot, home to large number of theatres as well as other attractions like the British Museum and V&A.
