Billy Elliot: The Musical is the acclaimed adaptation of Stephen Daldry's Oscar-winning film, with music by Elton John.
Billy is brought up by his father in a Northern mining town where boys are expected to box, not dance, let alone have dreams of attending the Royal Ballet School. After joining a ballet class, Billy's inspirational dance teacher spots real talent and encourages Billy to apply to the Royal Ballet. This inspirational follows Billy in his triumph over adversity and his fight to prove his doubters wrong by going all the way.
The original film, nominated for three Oscars and 13 Bafta awards, captured the heart of people around the world. Reuniting the original creative team behind the film, the musical is directed by Stephen Daldry, with lyrics by Lee Hall. The music was composed by legendary British singer-songwriter, Sir Elton John. The musical opened in London in 2005 and was nominated for nine Laurence Olivier Awards. It won four, including Best New Musical.
In New York, Billy Elliot won 10 Tony Awards and 10 Drama Desk Awards, including, in each case, best musical.
