About Billy Elliot

Billy Elliot the musical is another success story of a film turned into a theatre production which has achieved critical acclaim. The British film of the same name was originally released in 2000 and went on to win several BAFTAs, Golden Globes and Independent Film Awards, including Best British Film, Best Motion Picture, Best Original Screenplay and more. It's no surprise then, that in 2005 it made its way to the stages of the West End and beyond reaching as far as Melbourne Australia and a tour of the United States.

Directed by the experienced Stephen Daldry, who has worked in film, theatre and television and with music by Sir Elton John and backed by a strong script, Billy Elliot the musical was a sure-fire success from the start. So much so, since its original production it has won 10 Tony Awards and 4 Laurence Olivier Awards including Best Musical.

Originally penned by Lee Hall, the story of Billy Elliot is both moving and entertaining. Set in County Durham during the 1984–1985 miners' strikes, during a time of trouble, strife and hardship, Billy Elliot is the story of one young boy's passion for dance and the disapproval that goes with it. While his family strike and get involved in scuffles with the Police, Billy is busy learning the art of Ballet and trying to keep it a secret from his family. But how long will he be able to keep it quiet?

Lee Hall tells of how the musical version of Billy Elliot came about, when Elton John first saw the public performance of the original film at the Cannes festival and was sent home in a 'flood of tears' – later, the two would meet up to discuss the possibility of turning the movie into a musical. The two of them set about putting together a musical that was truly British and one that would be 'would be rough, lyrical, funny, and moving in equal measure.'

The stage production of Billy Elliot the musical is said to have cost £5.5 million to produce and has been showing at the Victoria Palace Theatre since it originally premiered in 2005. At its launch, Billy Elliot received numerous favourable reviews from the theatre going press and continues to keep entertaining people from all over.

Longer, darker, edgier and more violent than the film, Billy Elliot the musical delves deeper into the mining strikes and the violence that accompanied them. With Billy’s passion for Ballet and his growing talent, it is an extreme contrast which leads to emotional and evocative theatre – but that which is probably not suitable for a younger audience. Strong language and violent scenes are essential to the passion and fight for freedom from oppression from all quarters.
