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 want to go to the Royal Ballet School.
But Billy is a bit different. Brought up by a single father, Billy does not want to fight, but is interested by the grace and wonder of ballet. With determination he attempts to give ballet a go.
The Musical reunites the team behind the award-wining 2000 film – director Stephen Daldry, writer Lee Hall, choreographer Peter Darling and producer Jon Finn with the additon of the music by Sir Elton John, to turn the film into an all-singing, all-dancing stage spectacular. This makes the experience much more enjoyable and fun.
Quick heads up though, Billy Elliot – The Musical contains language which some people might find offensive or unsuitable for children. It is recommended for people aged eight and older.
