So I know that shows like Matilda and Billy Elliot are shows in which the actors alternate roles for certain nights. When it comes to cast recordings, how do they chose which, Billy for example, is going to sing for the album? What did they do for the original casts of these two shows?

I dont know how those two shows work it but the 1994 "Oliver' recording from London used the Dodger & Oliver from the opening night performance.

It varies. On the Matilda recording they share the songs/parts of songs between all of them
