The hugely popular musical Billy Elliot, based on the smash hit film, has been on stage at the Victoria Palace Theatre since late March 2005, inspiring a generation of young men to follow their own star despite any obstacles. It’s the ultimate feel-good musical, a real triumph against adversity set against a gritty northern English backdrop.
Recommended for anyone aged 12 upwards, the show is packed full of fiery language and earthy humour, a musical famous for its amazing choreography, brilliant show tunes and powerful message: it’s OK to be yourself, no matter what. Billy has a talent that could free him from ordinary life and make him famous. But will his family ever agree to support his ambitions?
