Billy Elliot is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the greatest musicals of all time and has been a firm favourite with SuperBreak guests from week one. The totally uncompromising story of the boy who dares to dream, and the divided, endangered community that pulls together to help him realise that dream touches a deep nerve in audiences of virtually every age and background. SuperBreak are celebrating Billy Elliot The Musical throughout this September, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to meet up with one of the actors playing Billy, and of course ask him what his dream short break would be made of…

How long have you been in the cast?

I have now been in the cast of Billy Elliot the Musical for just over 10 months! 

What is your favourite number/moment in the show? 

The number I like to perform in Billy Elliot the most is Electricity – it’s a big number for Billy and it’s my favourite style of dance. 

Arsenal or Chelsea? 

Chelsea 

What should theatre break visitors to Billy Elliot do in their other 48 hours in London? 

Go on the London Eye because you get such an amazing view of London! 

What are your favourite London sightseeing attractions? 

The museums in London are great. I went to the Natural History Museum for my birthday and I thought it was amazing. 

Do you plan to make a career on the stage? 

Yes I really enjoy performing in front of the audience; you get such a buzz from it. 

Eastenders or Hollyoaks? 

Neither! 

If you could have a short break anywhere in the UK, where would you go and why? 

I think I would choose Scotland.
