Based on the international smash-hit film, and featuring a score by music legend Elton John, Billy Elliot is an astonishing theatrical experience that will stay with you forever.
Set in a northern English mining town against the background of the 1984 miners' strike, Billy Elliot is the inspirational story of a young boy's struggle against the odds to make his dream come true. Follow 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 community... and changes his life forever.
Additionally, join us after the first performance for an exclusive opening night party featuring complimentary food and beverages, a photo booth, and a meet and greet with the cast and creative team! The opening night party is included with a ticket purchased for opening night, July 10th, and will follow the show in Forest Roberts Theatre lobby. All theatre and dance majors and minors are invited to attend free of charge.
We are excited to announce that the performance on Tuesday, July 14 at 7:30pm will be our sensory friendly Theatre for All performance!
