The inspiring tale of Billy Elliot is coming to arenas near you in this new country-wide live performance tour. The story of young Billy Elliot and his dreams of a career as a dancer has been featured not only on Broadway but in the highly acclaimed major motion picture of the same name. This beloved tale of an inspirational young boy can now be seen live in cities around the country.
The live production of Billy Elliot follows the young title character and his love of dance as he grows up in a depressed working-class town in the 1980’s. Although Billy has dreams of becoming a professional tap dancer, he must face accepted gender roles in society and struggle as his passion for dance is rejected by those closest to him and he is forced into the blue-collar world of his father and brother. The piece not only follows Billy’s story but the history-making 1984 miner’s strike that served as an influential moment in America’s history and the history of the working class.
