Lyric Theater of Oklahoma presented a regional production of Billy Elliot The Musical (BETM) at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City, OK from August 4-8, 2015.
Founded in 1963, Lyric is Oklahoma’s leading professional theatre company. For over 50 years, Lyric has produced classic and contemporary musicals and plays featuring both nationally known Broadway stars and local favorites. Lyric produces four large-scale, fully orchestrated musicals at the Civic Center Music Hall each summer, as well as four smaller works at the Plaza Theatre during the spring, fall and winter. Lyric’s Thelma Gaylord Academy is a professional training ground for students ages 5-18 offering classes in all aspects of musical theatre. Academy students have the opportunity to perform in two full-scale productions each year on the Plaza Theatre stage.
Unlike many of the first regional productions of BETM in the United States, which utilized many veterans of previous productions of the show on Broadway and the national tours, the cast in Oklahoma City was mostly new to the show, led by Billy newbie Brooks Landegger.
