Tommy Batchelor Still On Top Of His Game!

It was almost a year ago that I gave you a blow by blow personal account of my attendance of Tommy Bachelor’s last performance of “Billy” in Billy Elliot The Musical which was performed on the Oriental Stage in Chicago, Illinois.

Not only was the show phenomenal, but Tommy was at his very best giving it his all, very much realizing that this was his last performance on that stage.

It was not only a pleasure to watch his performance but even a greater pleasure to personally meet him backstage at the meet and greet, presenting him with a very special tribute gift that was presented by this site and The Skykid.com.  (See picture)

I have been doing my best to catch up with Tommy because I was very interested in knowing just how a young performer like himself who was seemingly at a pinnacle in his young career could possibly follow up this kind of highpoint and showcase performance.  What could possibly match the momentum of this kind of celebrity status?

I soon found out that talented youngsters like Tommy don’t stop dancing their way through life. Instead, it’s one adventure just leading to another.  Below is his personal letter exactly as he related it to me.



“This is Tommy Batchelor.

My last show with Billy Elliot Chicago was October 10, 2010; a day of weeping and long goodbyes.
