JOIN THE FORUM AND VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE PRESENTATION

We need more votes to make the poll more informative, especially from people who attended different productions.

Those of us who have attended the local productions have witnessed the positive effect that a presentation of Billy Elliot The Musical has on a large number of children in the dance community. This is a good reason why local theater companies that have presented BETM should consider doing it again.
Children age-out of the roles, so in order to allow everyone to experience the inspiration of performing the show, it should be presented every few years. Any theater group that has a youth program should make this show available to everyone as they pass through the 10 to 13 year old age group.
Please comment and vote in the poll. If you are not a member of this forum, please register, vote and support any local productions. Local kids will benefit.

The original is still the best! Is there anyone who saw the West End Production and still preferred another production?

Yes. I preferred Toronto. The rising bedroom set is cool, but I don't think it actually tells the story better than the Chicago/Toronto set. (I seem to recall some talk about the original Angry Dance being better, but I don't recall it in enough details to comment on that.) Toronto also had the best stage door.

Yes! The stage door after the show can be a big part of picking the favorite presentation. The performers at The Venice Theater in Florida hustled around to the front lobby to greet and talk with the audience on their way out. This friendly exchange was very comfortable since we knew that they wanted to talk, and we were not intruding on their privacy or their desire to get home. The bright lobby and the hundreds of people made for a safer environment for all, especially the kids. Some dark and deserted stage doors can be a bit creepy for the last to leave.

The Media Theater also had the Ballet Girls in the front lobby as the audience left. It made for a nice ending to an enjoyable presentation.
