Owner description: Now celebrating ten extraordinary years, Billy Elliot the Musical has won the hearts of millions since it opened in London's West End, becoming one of the most beloved, award-winning shows on stage today. Set in a northern mining town, against the background of the 1984/'85 miners' strike, Billy Elliot is the inspirational story of a young boy's struggle against the odds to make his dreams come true. The story follows Billy's journey as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and whole community and changes his life forever. Featuring a timeless score by Elton John, sensational dance and a powerful story that has captivated audiences around the world, Billy Elliot the Musical is a funny, uplifting and spectacular theatrical experience that will stay with you forever. Now seen by over 10 million people worldwide, there's never been a better time to see Billy Elliot the Musical.

“Outstanding”

Outstanding performances by al of the cast, with enjoyable humour throughout. The young Billy and Michael were superb and the dancing was amazingly brilliant

Highly recommend this as one of the best shows in the West End

Great story. It touches the heart. Good actors. The show moved along at a good pace. No boring parts. Only dislike was the theater temperature was way too hot.
