Billy Elliot the Musical has heart, humor, and passion and has been called “the most inspiring show I’ve seen in years” by the New York Times. The show was honored with ten 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Since its London debut, Billy Elliot the Musical has delighted the critics, swept the awards, and captured the hearts of more than six million people worldwide.

Set in a small town in the North of England against the background of the historic 1984/85 miners’ strike, Billy, the son of a miner, discovers an extraordinary talent for dance, which he pursues in secret to avoid the disapproval of his family and community. In the end, he ends up inspiring them instead, and his life changes forever.

Based on the internationally acclaimed film, Billy Elliot the Musical is brought to life by a phenomenal cast of 45 performers and the Tony Award–winning creative team–director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall–along with music legend Elton John, whose score is called “show-stopping and electric” by the New York Times.
