Billy Elliot the Musical

Now Playing

About the Production Official site

Billy Elliot, the inspiring film about a boy who discovers a passion for dance, was first released in cinemas in 2000, quickly becoming an international box office smash which earned three Academy Awards and thirteen BAFTA nominations.

In 2005, the original team behind the film - writer Lee Hall, director Stephen Daldry and choreographer Peter Darling - were joined by music legend Elton John to create Billy Elliot the Musical which opened in London to extraordinary critical and public acclaim.

Still playing to packed houses in London’s West End, the show has gone on to extraordinary international success, having been seen around the world by over 9 million people, picking up over 80 theatre awards internationally on the way.

To date, international productions have been staged in Sydney, Melbourne, New York, Chicago, Seoul and Toronto. On Broadway, the show ran for over three years winning 10 Tony Awards in 2009 including Best Musical.

The North American touring production, which has been on the road since 2010, will make a stop in São Paulo, Brazil, in August 2013, and further international productions are planned.
