One of the stars of “Billy Elliot” has not only graced the Broadway stage but that of Heritage High School in Littleton as well.
Billy Elliot is a stage performance about a boy, the son of a striking coal miner in Great Britain who discovers a talent for and a love of ballet. It’s also about a miner’s strike and the economic downturn of Britain.
There are strict laws regarding children working on stage. That means that a show like “Billy Elliot” needs at least four “Billys” for the eight performances a week.
