By Julye Huggins
Billy Elliot Webisodes: From Screen to Stage

Running January 1st through 6th at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Billy Elliot the Musical is the inspiring story of a young boy’s journey to follow his dream of becoming a dancer. The presenter’s website elaborates: “Set in a small town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a surprising passion that inspires his family and his whole community.”Based on the internationally acclaimed film, this musical rendition by Director Stephen Daldry has itself won ten 2009 Tony® Awards including Best Musical. The creative team features choreographer Peter Darling, writer Lee Hall and composer Elton John, along with a cast forty-five including Ben Cook, Drew Minard, Noah Parets and Mitchell Tobin who alternately share the leading role. The show is set to tour to Montréal (January 8-13), Edmonton (March 19-24), Calgary (March 26-31) and Vancouver (April 2-7).
