SO you think you can play Billy Elliot? This October, the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, in partnership with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, will begin the search for a talented young performer to play the titular role in the January 2016 production of the hit musical Billy Elliot.

Directed by Royal MTC artistic director Steven Schipper, with choreography by Tracey Flye, the production will be the musical's Winnipeg première.

RWB and Royal MTC will identify and train the boys who will share the lead role -- as well as candidates for other children's parts -- at the RWB School over 18 months. Winnipeg auditions begin at the RWB School Oct. 9, and an audition-by-DVD campaign will run until Dec. 1. The companies are looking for an athletic, musical, energetic young man between the ages of 10 and 12 with a background in ballet and tap.
