Billy Elliot The Musical is an adaptation of one of the UK's most treasured films of the last decade and is hotly tipped to become the biggest theatrical event of 2005. Fans of the award-wining 2000 film will be pleased to learn that the musical is reuniting the talents of director Stephen Daldry, writer Lee Hall and producer Jon Finn. Combined with a musical score by Sir Elton John and the choreography of Peter Darling, it is easy to see why this is one of the most talked about shows in years. Based in mid-eighties Tyneside, deep within the bitter miner's strike, the story is of a young boy who is fascinated by the grace and magic of ballet ? but is hampered by a father who wants him to be a boxer.
The show is a funny, heart-warming and feel-good celebration of one young boy's dream in a gripping tale of triumph over adversity. The original story captured the hearts and minds of the world when the movie was released, receiving 3 Oscar and 13 Bafta award nominations and breaking box office records across the world.
