After 10 years, Ann Emery has retired from playing the role of Grandma in Billy Elliot The Musical.
Ann originated the role of Grandma in the show when it opened in the West End and will now be replaced by Gillian Elisa who alternated the role.
Gillian said: “I first joined the cast in 2011 and have loved every moment working on this special show. It’s a real privilege to take this iconic role on full time.”
Britishtheatre.com would like to wish Ann a happy retirement.
Billy Elliot continues at the Victoria Palace Theatre with Ruthie Henshall playing the role of Mrs Wilkinson.
