BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL is the joyous celebration of one boy’s journey to make his dreams come true and has been called “THE BEST SHOW YOU’LL EVER SEE” by the New York Post and was the winner of ten 2009 Tony® Awards including BEST MUSICAL. Since its 2005 London debut, which has been followed by acclaimed productions in Sydney, New York, Melbourne, Chicago, Seoul, Toronto and on tour across the United States, BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL has delighted the critics, swept the awards and captured the hearts of more than 8 million people worldwide.
Set in a small town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a surprising talent that inspires his family and his whole community and changes his life forever. A big musical with an even bigger heart, BILLY ELLIOT will enchant the dreamer in all of us.
Based on the international smash-hit film, BILLY ELLIOT is brought to life by a phenomenal cast and the Tony Award-winning creative team -- director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall -- along with music legend Elton John, who has written what the New York Post calls “HIS BEST SCORE YET!”
It’s your turn to experience this joyous celebration of one boy’s journey against the odds to make his dreams come true.
