Pavilion Spotlight: Billy Elliot the Musical

Posted: Updated:

Billy Elliot traded in his boxing gloves for ballet slippers.

"The main message of the whole show is follow your dreams, express yourself. Don't be afraid to be you and who you want to be," said Ben Cook who plays Billy.

It's a message the 15-year-old, who has been touring as Billy for the last year, says resonated with everyone in the audience.

At the end of Act 1 is Cook's favorite number - the Angry Dance.

"One of my favorite moments, because whatever you've been holding up the whole day, if you're angry about little or bad things you can let it all out," said Cook.

He hasn't been to South Dakota before, but Cook says he enjoys being a teen in a traveling show.

"It's hard work but a lot of fun getting to travel and come to Florida and cool little towns like Sioux Falls."
