Billy Elliot The Musical at Goodspeed Musicals
Liam got notification of auditions for BETM and attended them. He relates that the audition was quite long with lots of dancing, singing and the running of lines. He states, “It was a great experience and I met some really nice people”.
Once he received word that he had been cast in the show as one of two Billys, rehearsals began on 12-Aug-2019 and were held six days a week right up until the opening week of the show.
When he debuts as Billy at Goodspeed Musicals, Liam becomes the 277th boy to bring the title role to life in a professional, regional or community theatre production of the musical.
