TORONTO, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Sir Elton John and David Furnish arrive in
Toronto next Tuesday for Mirvish Productions' Canadian premiere of Billy Elliot the Musical, and their first and only stop is CTV. In celebration of the March 1 debut of the hit musical, the multiple Grammy® -winning superstar along
with his acclaimed producer and partner make their first visit - and
only Canadian stop - to CTV's 299 Queen Street campus in Toronto for
exclusive sit-down interviews on television and radio. Stopping by THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW, ETALK, CANADA AM and CHUM FM, the pair put viewers at the front of the line for the premiere of this
Tony Award® -winning stage sensation, before CP24 provides live
coverage of the red carpet arrivals that night. With ticket giveaways
from each of the outlets, CTV is also giving fans an opportunity to be
among the first to see "THE BEST SHOW YOU WILL EVER SEE" (New York Post).
Executive Produced by David Furnish and with a score by Sir Elton John
that The New York Times called "show-stopping and electric," Billy Elliot was honoured with ten 2009 Tony® Awards including Best Musical. Set in
a small English town and based on the film of the same name, the story
follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet
class, discovering a surprising talent for dance that inspires his
family and his whole community, and changes his life forever.
"As the four young dancers playing Billy - J.P., Myles, Cesar and Marcus
- prepare for the Canadian debut of this magical musical, we welcome
Sir Elton John and David Furnish to CTV," said Susanne Boyce,
President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. "Our viewers can't
wait to hear the story of how their stage production conquered the West
End, Broadway and cities around the world."
