    Fredrik Halvorsen was 12 years old when he debuted on stage as Billy Elliot at The National Theatre in Bergen, Norway.

    Prior to auditioning for the role of Billy, Fredrik had never taken a ballet class before.  In fact, it wasn’t something he had ever considered doing.

    “Before you start dancing ballet, you have to practice a lot of small things”, Fredrik said in reference to the beginning of his ballet training.

    Fredrik is the youngest of the three boys who have been cast to rotate as Billy in Bergen.

    Here are some clips from the show, featuring Fredrik as Billy:


    With his debut performance on 31-Jan-2024, Fredrik becomes the 350th young actor worldwide to play the role of Billy in a professional, regional or community theatre production of the musical.
