Billy Elliot @ Victoria Palace Theatre (booking until 15 Dec)

If you loved the film, Billy Elliot you’ll fall in love with the stage version.billyelliotthemusical3

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.
