Following the enormous success of Billy Youth Theatre 2010, the producers of Billy Elliot the Musical are delighted to announce the second year of this countrywide scheme as part of which participating schools and youth groups will be given the opportunity to stage their own production of this internationally award-winning show.
Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall, together with Martin Koch (Musical Supervision and Orchestrations), have adapted their original script and orchestrations to produce a shortened version of the show exclusively for groups staging local productions as part of Billy Youth Theatre.

Participating performers must be aged 10 – 19 on March 18th, 2011. Applications are now open and will close on Friday, November 5th. All applications must be made via the BYT website.
