When I Grow Up
by Elliot Davis and Kieran Edwards
Once upon a time there was a boy but he was very unhappy. He had everything a little boy could want, a bike, a ukulele, and a cricket set. He had a family who loved him, a mum who made the best chips and a dad who played catch but still he was so unhappy. And why? Because he was born in a girls body.
Elliot graduated from the Actor Musicianship course at Rose Bruford Collage in 2007. He was in the award-winning punk opera The Inconsiderate Aberrations of Billy the Kid (music co-writer, and Assistant Music Director). Elliot joined NIE in 2010 and has since worked with them as Music Director and actor in Hansel and Gretel, Tales from the River Thames, Around the World in 80 Days, I Will be Everything and was in the original cast of Beauty and the Beast, which toured to the New Victory theatre, off Broadway, New York.
