London: Over the coming months four new actors will join the cast of Billy Elliot as the title character. Joining current Billies, Travis Yates, Leon Cooke, and Liam Mower, will be:

The current cast includes only three actors rotating as the young ballet dancer, but will now include five.

All of the new additions have trained at the show's training program in Leeds.

Billy Elliot opened at The Victoria Palace on May 11th to stellar reviews. It features direction by Stephen Daldry, and music and lyrics by Elton John.

Also starring are Chris Lennon as Tony, Alex Delamare as Mr. Braithwaite, Paul Broughton as George, Tim Healy as Dad, and Stephanie Putson as Mum.

Billy Elliot is the story about one young boy's struggle to study ballet even though his macho dad and brother won't stand for it.
