Original Billy Elliots reunite

First Published 5 September 2014, Last Updated 5 September 2014

An incredible 27 former and current Billy Elliots will unite to perform a special one-off finale for the forthcoming live broadcast performance that will be screened to cinemas worldwide later this month.

As previously announced, on 28 September a live stream of the Stephen Daldry-directed show will be shown in cinemas both in the UK and across the world with one of the original Olivier Award-winning Billy Elliots, Liam Mower, also returning to the show to perform the role of Older Billy.

The line-up of 27 Billy Elliots aged between 11 and 24-years-old will provide a spectacular conclusion to the evening when they perform a specially choreographed mash-up finale.

Amongst the group will be the three original Billy Elliots – James Lomas, George Maguire and Mower – who famously became the youngest ever Olivier Award winners when the show was awarded five of the prestigious accolades in 2006. They have since only been beaten in this claim to fame by 2012’s ever-so-slightly littler Matilda The Musical stars.

Talking about the plan to bring back leads from across the much-loved show’s eight year history, director Daldry commented: “We are thrilled to welcome so many of our former Billys back to the Victoria Palace Theatre for this very special performance. We’ve been delighted to see them flourish as performers since their time in the show and it will be wonderful to bring them together again for this unique event.”

Joining the trio, who, now in their early 20s come in as the oldest members of the talented group, will be fellow former Billy stars Leon Cooke (23), Matthew Koon (20), Dean McCarthy (22), Layton Williams (20), Oliver Taylor (20), Joshua Fedrick (20), Fox Jackson-Keen (19), Tom Holland (18), Brad Wilson (18), Ollie Gardner (17), Rhys Yeomans (16), Aaron Watson (16), Scott McKenzie (17), Josh Baker (16), Ryan Collinson (16), Kaine Ward (15), Harris Beattie (15), Harrison Dowzell (14), Redmand Rance (14) and Ali Rasul (13).

Fittingly, the line-up will be completed by the quartet of current alternating Billy Elliots; 11-year-old Elliott Hanna, 12-year-old Bradley Perret, 12-year-old Matteo Zecca and 12-year-old Ollie Jochim.
