One of Britain's most successful films ever, Billy Elliot, gets a stage makeover with music added by legendary tunester Sir Elton John.
The musical tells the story of young Billy, who is born in a northern town where men box and work in the mines. They do not dance and they certainly do not harbour ambitions of attending the Royal Ballet School. But Billy is a bit different. Brought up by a single father, without a mother's touch, Billy does not want to fight, but is enthralled by the grace and wonder of ballet. With gritty determination he attempts to prove doubters wrong by going all the way.
Billy Elliot The Musical reunites the team behind the award-wining 2000 film – director Stephen Daldry, writer Lee Hall, choreographer Peter Darling and producer Jon Finn – and adds to that the musical mastery of Sir Elton John, to turn the highly acclaimed film into an all-singing, all-dancing stage spectacular.
Billy Elliot The Musical contains language which some people might find offensive or unsuitable for children. It is recommended for theatregoers aged eight and older.
