Show Description:
Based on the 2000 Academy Award nominated film and winner of 10 Tony Awards in 2009 including Best Musical, Billy Elliot is the story of a young boy in a depressed mining town in England. Set during the 1984 miner’s strike, the show follows Billy, the youngest child of a blue-collar family that has recently lost its Mum, as he discovers his unlikely and extraordinary gift for ballet. While his family takes to the picket lines, Billy secretly begins to study the art of dance. As Billy blossoms and thrives, the world and lives around him continue to wither. His only escape may be the prestigious Royal Ballet School, a place no working-class boy has ever gone, or been allowed to go to, before. **This production contains strong language**
