On June 22, the cast of Billy Elliot welcomed a special guest to the Imperial Theatre: their 1.5 millionth audience member.

After the players took their bows at the matinee performance, ''Billy'' (Peter Mazurowski) and his onstage 'Dad' (Gregory Jbara) came forward to surprise the milestone audience member, Caty Dougherty.

The Philadelphia residents Billy Elliot ticket was the 1.5 millionth scanned at the New York venue, and in honour of her special place in the story of Broadways Tony-winning show, she was welcomed onto the stage for a once in a lifetime photo with the cast.

Caty not only got to spend some quality time with the performers, she took home a bag of Billy swag, a special framed window card signed by the whole Billy Elliot family, gift bags from Molton Brown and Serendipity 3 and dinner for two at Glass House Tavern.
