    Kaspar KiiskThumbKaspar Kiisk was 12-years-old (D.O.B. 31-Dec-2002) and lived in Tartu, Estonia when he debuted as Billy Elliot on 27-Mar-2015.  He headlined a production of BETM which opened at the Nordea Concert Hall in Tallinn, Estonia on 28-Mar-2015. He was the 90th boy in the world to play Billy professionally on stage.

     His academic studies were at the Tartu Mart Reiniku Gümnaasium,  a local school in his home town.

    Kaspar’s prior experience included prominent roles in the Vanemuise Theatre’s childrens musicals Mary Poppins,  Maria Stuarda, and Bumpy.

    As he’s grown older, Kaspar has been encouraged to audition for “grown up” shows and that encouragement led to his trying out for a role in Billy Elliot The Musical.

    He has spent the past several months rehearsing and training in the various dance genres that he needs to play the arduous title role in the show.

    In this video, taped during an Estonian TV show in December, 2014 to promote the BETM production, Kaspar performs a very emotional rendition of The Letter, with Kaire Vilgats (Mrs. Wilkinson) and Dagmar Oja (Dead Mum):
