REVIEW: Billy Elliot – Shine Youth Musical Theatre – Pavillion Theatre Glasgow 8th June 2011
The producers of Billy Elliot in the West End operate a youth programme and have selected Shine Youth Theatre Group to stage this production of the award-winning show at Glasgow’s Pavilion Theatre.
The Pavilion has a large stage to fill and it was really heartwarming to see children performing with absolute professionalism. Their focus was unfaltering throughout especially Reece Miller in the title role, Ryan Cuthell (11) as cross-dressing best friend Michael, and Lawrence Sharkey as Mr. Elliot, a 17 year old with a tenor voice full of resonance that would match any West End leading man. Stars of the future for sure.
