About Billy Elliot

The tale of a little boy who overcomes poverty and prejudice to become a ballet dancer is so simple yet so uplifting it’s no wonder Billy Elliot became a movie classic. Billy Elliot the Musical, with its stunning dance sequences and inspired music by Elton John, is even better.

If you haven't seen the film in a while or - heaven forbid - you missed it altogether, tickets for the multi-Tony Award-winning Billy Elliot the Musical do just as good a job of transporting you back to the sight and sounds of '80s. You may even feel a pang for your own 'inner Billy Elliot' of years gone by, when you weren't afraid to dream and it felt like the world was at your feet.

What's the story?

Set in a northern mining town against the background of the 1984/85 miners’ strike, Billy Elliot is the inspirational story of a young boy’s struggle against the odds to make his dreams come true.

Follow Billy’s journey as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and whole community and changes his life forever.

Featuring a timeless score by Elton John, sensational dance and a powerful story, Billy Elliot the Musical, winner of the 2013 Olivier Audience Award, is a funny, uplifting and spectacular theatrical experience that will stay with you forever.
