David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik and Kiril Kulish, who alternate in the title role of Billy Elliot the Musical, will perform on CBS' "The Early Show" May 5.

The appearance will include all three boys performing the musical's "Electricity." "The Early Show" airs in the New York metropolitan area on WCBS-TV, Channel 2 from 7-9 AM ET; check local listings.

Stephen Daldry, who directed the inspirational motion picture of the same name, also directs the stage production. The music is by Elton John with book and lyrics by Lee Hall. A cast album preserves the work of the London company.

The tale is set in England's Northeast against the backdrop of a miners' strike in Margaret Thatcher-ruled Great Britain. The musical concerns a working-class boy's dream of becoming a ballet dancer — and the obstacles and advocates he encounters.

Billy Elliot plays the Imperial Theatre.
