Billy Elliot: The Musical - A Feel-Good Celebration

Billy Elliot
Billy Elliot has been running at the beautiful Victoria Palace Theatre for 6 years and as winner of 10 Tony Awards in 2009, including Best Musical, it is still one of the hot London theatre tickets.

The musical tells the story of Billy who discovers a passion for dancing but meets with resistance from his family. He finds an ally in Mrs Wilkinson, a dance school teacher who, once spotting his natural talent, persuades him to audition for the Royal Ballet School. Cleverly weaved alongside this is the story of how Billy’s’ family and the whole community are affected by the Miners’ strike of 1984/1985. When discovering Billy’s “hobby” his Dad and brother initially see it as an unwelcome distraction in the midst of the conflict, but eventually bring everyone together so that Billy can seize this “once in a lifetime” opportunity.

The shows’ music was created by Elton John with lyrics from Lee Hall. The choreography by Peter Darling, is fabulous and features a wonderful and funny dance sequence by Billy and Michael. The whole cast give superb performances night after night with regular fantastic lead performances from Scott McKenzie as Billy, Martin Marquez as his Dad and Connor Kelly as his best friend Michael.

This show has you roaring with laughter in one breath to holding back the tears the next and is definitely one not to be missed!
