The national tour of Billy Elliot played the National Arts Centre from January 1 through January 4, and audiences were taken with the inspiring story of a boy who discovers his passion for dance. It turns out the cast also became a fan of the city. Watch the video below to see Billy Elliot stars Noah Parets and Janet Dickenson talk about their time spent in Ottawa and other Canadian cities. Parets also describes his arduous audition process for the demanding title role (we’re talking eight months of tryouts!). Check out the video below for all the details on Billy’s delightful story.
