Victoria Palace Theatre (London)
Billy Biographical Information
On March 31, 2005, Billy Elliot the Musical opened in previews at the Victoria Palace Theatre (VPT) in London when Liam Mower became the first boy to ever set foot on a stage in the title role in front of a paying audience. A total of 42 boys — all with extraordinary talent — brought the title role to life at the VPT. There is no doubt that the reason for the 11 year run of this show was largely the result of the unique abilities of these young stars.
But how did these young men come to be in the show?
Contained here are the detailed profiles (bios) that answer that question.
Profile Index for the London Billys
The profiles of the 42 London Billys who graced the stage of the Victoria Palace Theatre in London over its 11 year run are found in the index below. The index is in alphabetical order by the actor’s last name. By clicking on the name of the Billy below his picture, you’ll be taken to that Billy’s profile.
The timeline, below, is a visual depiction of when the 42 London Billys graced the stage of the VPT. It lets the viewer easily see who was in the Billy rotation at any given time. Note that the number above each name is each actor’s “London Billy Number”, the order in which they debuted in London. That number should not be confused with their world-wide Billy Number, which is the order in which all Billys around the world have debuted, in all the different productions of the show. So after Josh Fedrick (#13), when the Australian production opened in Sydney, the London Billys will have two different numbers: their London number (which is the one contained in this timeline) — and their world-wide Billy number. If that’s confusing, go here and you can easily see how the two numbers work: https://betm.theskykid.com/billys-debut/
