What the hell’s wrong with expressing yourself? Being who you want to be? Will anybody die if you put on a dress? Who the hell cares if your blush is a mess!
Atlantic Light Theatre. Run by Doug Vaughan and Jacinta Mackey Graham, this production company first brought us to tears with “Les Misérables”, then they taught us to always look on the bright side of life with “Spamalot”, and last year, wowed us with “Sister Act”, but what’s next? Well, get ready to shout “Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher!” because their next production will be “Billy Elliot”!!!
Billy Elliot is the story of a young boy. His father has him enrolled in boxing lessons but Billy doesn’t like them very much. Directly after the boxing lessons is a ballet class. Billy stumbles upon it one day and realizes that this is what he wants to do instead. It’s such a phenomenal show with some of the most incredible dancing I’ve seen! The score is also awesome! My favorite song from this show is so hard to choose! It’s a three way tie between “Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher“, “Expressing Yourself” and “Electricity“.
Does electricity spark inside of you? Are YOU the next Billy Elliot, Mrs. Wilkinson or Michael? Start practicing your ballet dancing because auditions are coming very soon! They are May 28th-30th at the Arts and Culture Centre. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request an audition! Good luck!
