Billy Elliot is one of the most celebrated and award winning musicals of its time. It has dazzled audiences around the world with its astounding dance performances, Elton John's spectacular score and powerful story set against the background of the bitter, and sometimes violent, miner's strike that economically devastated northern England in 1984. While Billy's father and older brother struggle with the strike, 11 year-old Billy discovers his talents and passion lie in ballet class. His struggle begins when he tries to convince his family and community the only hope for his dream to come true is to audition for the Royal Ballet.
