Why See Billy Elliot?
Don't miss this wonderful adaptation of the uplifting British movie about a boy whose passion for ballet unites the community his gruff Northern England town during the tumult of Margaret Thatcher's government and the 1984 miners strike. Presented by the Hasson Company and Pixie Dust Productions, this production features a book full of wit and heart from the film's screenwriter Lee Hall alongside a memorial original score by none other than Elton John!
He loves to boogie - the story of Billy ElliotThe story follows the titular Billy, a young boy growing up in a small English miner's town. Prospects and open minds are slim in this rural setting, so when Billy bucks the odds and trades his boxing gloves for a pair of ballet pumps (and turns out to have a gift for ballet), not everyone is pleased... With the help of the local dance teacher and a friend or two, Billy fights for his dancing dream, changing minds and hearts in the process.
