Looking at the cast of the Road Company's presentation of Billy Elliot The Musical, I am reminded of the family sacrifice that takes place at almost every venue. Both Liam's family and Noah's family will have a long drive to get their child to training and rehearsals four times or more every week for two and a half months. Then they must wait for hours until the return home. And some of the other children also require long drives and waits from their family for the lesser roles.
So here's a salute to the parents, older siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents, teachers and family friends who give up so much of their time for the advancement of the children and our enjoyment of this show. It proves that "It takes a village to raise a child".

Who would have thought, with the closing of the Broadway production and tours, that Billy Elliot the Musical would live on years later; not only live on, but prosper all around the USA and the world.

The regional and school productions have excelled beyond my highest expectations. Thousands of children have been inspired and motivated. Thousands of adults have felt the reward of watching this inspiring musical change the lives of young people in the cast and in the audience. Only the regional productions could reach so many people that the Broadway productions could not.

The Road Company of Williamstown is an excellent theater company that always seems to touch the community that it serves. I can’t wait to see their presentation of Billy Elliot the Musical on opening night, October 19th. I will be watching the facial expressions of the children for the indications that this great musical has changed their lives. I didn’t think it possible, but regional theaters are even more inspiring than the Broadway shows.
