The role of Billy in the stage musical was originally played by Liam Mower, who received a fantastic reception for his performance. This video shows him on Children in Need singing what is probably the show’s signature number, Electricity, which was inspired by the dialogue from the film and composed by pop superstar Elton John. You can also get a sense of the magic of the ballet routines within the show with an extended piece of choreography danced by Liam, and there is a short interview at the end of the video.
Billy Elliot the Musical reached its five year anniversary in 2010, celebrating with a performance from all the Billys past and present. This clip from news programme London Tonight interviews the first ever Billy, Liam Mower, and the child performer who was portraying Billy at the time of the anniversary, Rhys Kosakowski, about what it is like to appear in such a successful musical and why they think that the show has had such an impact over the years.
