A Triumphant New Musical
The musical the world fell in love with, Billy Elliot: The Musical is a triumphant and dance-filled sensation takes place during the mid-1980s coal miners’ strike in North England. Motherless, 11 year-old, Billy trades in his boxing gloves for ballet shoes and discovers a hidden and extraordinary gift. A talent that he keeps from his father and brother as the strike begins to escalate and becomes all-encompassing for his family. Against all odds and, at first, the disdain of his family, Billy becomes an inspiration not only to his family, but to the entire town. A deeply touching story of heart, humor, and passion told through the musical mastery of Sir Elton John.
