“Nolen Dubuc captures the young protagonist’s innocent curiosity and passion for dance exquisitely.”
– Lauren Gienow, Broadway World

Nolen fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming Billy Elliot by starring as the title character in the Stratford Festival production of Billy Elliot the Musical (2019). Working under the direction of renowned director/choreographer Donna Feore, he earned rave reviews from audiences and critics alike and proved his status as a true triple threat throughout his 119 performances.

Nolen made his musical theatre debut in the summer of 2017, playing the mischievous Michael Banks in Mary Poppins with Theatre Under the Stars. His performance resulted in an Ovation Award nomination and his first Joey Award. Nolen then played the lovable Chip in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, followed by John Bechdel in the critically-acclaimed Fun Home both with The Arts Club Theatre Company in Vancouver. He earned his second Joey Award for the latter. Nolen’s foray in film began in 2017 with a starring role in a short film, Lost Trees, for the Vancouver Film School, followed in 2018 by a role in Universal’s Good Boys, produced by Seth Rogen.

Nolen began dance lessons at the age of four, and his natural affinity for the art form was obvious. Over the next 6 years, he would be recognized as the “Most Promising Junior Dancer” at the Chilliwack Dance Festival (2016), the “Provincial Dance Champion for Tap” (2016) and the “Provincial Qualifier for Tap and Lyrical” (2017) at Synergy. As a vocalist, Nolen was named the “Most Promising Junior Male Vocalist” for the Coquitlam District Music Festival in 2016 and 2017 and Most Promising Vocalist for the Kiwanis Honours Concert in 2017.
