I went to see the show with my mum and I have to say it was the best show I have ever seen. The whole cast was incredible - especially Billy.

Visited in October and it was a brilliant show. All of the actors were very professional and seemed to love the show. The boy playing Billy was great and loved the Oprah bit when young and older Billy was dancing together. Will go again for sure

While this play has been running for years....it is still the best play in town for all ages. Loved the music, dancing, singing....and the story.

This show was truly amazing, so much energy and a joy to watch; that was until 20 minutes in and I realised I was 40 years too old to be sat in those seats (I'm 46).........in four words: visually amazing, physically destroying.

It was fantastic! How can such young actors be so talented? The show was well staged and the performance flawless. Most people I spoke to had seen it three times....enough said.

I had told everyone in my party of eight that this show is great and I had seen it three times before. My party included four teenagers (13-16) and that was my greatest worry ! No Worry they enjoyed it so much they laughed and cried all the way through. Great Show - Must See
