I must say I am a bit concerned that they have only one Billy.

I've said this right along for many of these smaller regional or community theater productions, many of which have just one Billy. As we know, the show doesn't go on without Billy and unfortunately we've seen how easy it is for a Billy to get sick or injured. It would seem beneficial if such productions would at least have a Billy understudy. But then, many of these smaller organizations probably don't have the rehearsal time or the resources to do so. In such cases, cancellation of the show would seem to be the only recourse.

Wow!!! Well, to be completely accurate, we have had former and current Billys and other current-at-the-time cast members appear here now and then, so *technically* we've had forum members in shows, but certainly nothing like this! :D Congratulations, Lightman7!
