Boy with cerebral palsy wins dream West End role

An 11-year-old boy who suffers from cerebral palsy has been given a starring role in the West End.

Three years ago Ethan Quinn was spending half his time in a wheelchair.

His parents raised £50,000 for a life changing operation that was unavailable on the NHS.

"Just that one operation made such a difference. I just don't think I would have been able to do this because it's standing on pianos and dancing, " Ethan told BBC London.
