ONE of West Fife's youngest stage stars will be performing as Billy Elliot this month in the Movies to Musicals show in Glasgow.

Aaron MacGregor, aged 10, from Crossgates, has already starred in his fair share of shows but beat hundreds of children to make the cast.

Rhienne McAllister, 12, from Dunfermline, also made the cut and both will star as part of the Glasgow Philharmonic Orchestra concert on February 21.

They will share the stage alongside Faye Tozer (Steps), Ben Adams (A1) and West End star Kerry Ellis.

Aaron, who started performing at the age of five, made it into the Press last year when he was cast in a West End production of ‘Nativity! The Musical’.

The Crossgates Primary pupil has starred in various productions, including two independent films, and has also been asked to perform in Madama Butterfly by the Russian State Opera when it comes to the Alhambra next month.

Aaron's mum, Ash, said: "Movies to Musicals will be going on tour at the Fringe around Scotland in September.

"He's got two or three numbers as Billy Elliot and he's just brilliant at doing the Geordie accent!

"He is now with an agency in Edinburgh and it's great that he's been getting events in Scotland but it would be even better if he could audition for the West End.

"At the moment, there are strict rules about Scottish kids being out of school so it is just a nightmare but I'm in discussions with the Scottish Parliament about it.

"It's a really difficult industry – quite cut-throat – but I just know that's what he wants to do."

Rhienne's mum, Sam, said: "She is constantly doing stuff!

"She's also in Swan Lake this month so she's got a busy month!

"She's not in a drama school but she's a part of the specialist dance programme at Broughton High School in Edinburgh – she's started S1 there.

"She started dancing when she was three and she's never stopped since!"
