Billy Elliot the Musical
Author(s): Music by Elton John, book and lyrics by Lee Hall
It’s the mid-'80s. Thatcher is at her most powerful. Men mine and boys box. Until, in a small town in County Durham, a young boy falls in love with ballet.
Set amidst the increasingly bitter 1984/85 miners’ strike, Billy Elliot the Musical is a tale of determination, acceptance and daring to be different. In a close-knit community where family and tradition means everything, can Billy forge a new destiny and follow his passion?
Based on Stephen Daldry's 2000 film, with music by Elton John and book and lyrics by Lee Hall, this musical features songs such as "Solidarity", "The Letter", "He Could Be a Star" and "Electricity".
