Just fantastic. Such good dancing,and the young actors were brilliant.A must see! A fair bit of swearing now and then so be aware if taking children to see it. I shall be taking my 9 year old son and 14 year old daughter and I know they will both love it!

We brought these tickets last minute and was our third choice in what to see for a reasonable price . We were not at all disappointed a fantastic show not to be missed . Shame the theatre was half empty . We paid £48 for our seats they were on the last row of the dress circle but managed to move to 3 row from the front due to half empty theatre and had a fantastic view . All the actors but all the ore into this show . Well done !

Thoroughly enjoyed Billy Elliott.. Would have walked straight back in to see it again. The children in this musical were absolutely wonderful, talented and very professional.
Tell your kids there is a bit of language in it but a must see for them especially if they desire a career in the arts.
We sat in the Grand Circle in The Victoria Palace Theatre and really enjoyed our seats but very little leg room. Did not detract from the awesome musical.
Clap hard & loud for a marvellous curtain call full of fun.
A for some take some tissues!

Me and a friend recently went to London to celebrate my birthday and luckily purchased some billy Elliott tickets and I'm so glad we did! We were so close to the front and enjoyed every moment of it. All the actors were fantastic and little Micheal was hilarious. Also, the look on billys face when the entire audience got to their feet and applauded was priceless and heart warming. Would recommend to everyone. You won't be disappointed.

Billy Elliot's adaptation from the film version is superb as it features the interpretation in various aspects - music, politics and drama. The dancing is great and had been adapted to suit audiences of all ages and interests. You don't need to love ballet to see it but you will love it when the musical has come to an end.
