Hey Westport kids: Got nothing to do over winter break?
Audition for “Billy Elliot”!
The national touring company is holding auditions this week at New York’s Pearl Studios.
Want to be the next Billy? If you’re between 9 and 12 years old, and no taller than 4-10, be there this Thursday (Feb. 18) at 10 a.m. You should have strong dance, ballet and/or tap talents, as well as an unbroken voice. It’s probably good to be pretty far from puberty too.
Auditions for Michael (maximum height 4-10; natural actor with a strong singing voice; “funny, a real kid”) and Small Boy (no taller than 3-7; “ability to listen on stage, concentrate, and not fidget”) take place Thursday at 1 p.m.
Girls get their chance this Saturday, Feb. 20 at 10 a.m. The casting folks seek “a variety of sizes, shapes and types, with expressive character and lots of personality, not the traditional ballerina.”

PS: “All ethnicities are encouraged to attend.”
