CLOC presents Billy Elliot

by | Apr 9, 2024

 

Be Electrified by The Boy Who Wants to Dance

 

From the bleak, muggy streets of northern England to the bright stage lights of a London ballet stage comes Billy Elliot, which tells the story of a boy’s struggle for the right to express himself through dance, set against a community’s struggle for the right to work during the 1984 Coal Miners’ Strike in Great Britain.

 

Boasting 10 Tony Awards, 10 Drama Desk awards, 4 Olivier Awards and 7 Helpmann Awards (including Best Musical in each case), Billy Elliot is based on the 2000 international smash-hit film and features a stunning score by music legend Sir Elton John. Since its 2005 London debut, the show has toured the world, delighting critics and capturing the hearts of millions of people around the globe. Billy Elliot is an astonishing international musical phenomenon that has enough heart, humour and passion to be called “the best show you’ll ever see” by the New York Post.

 

CLOC is thrilled to present this Victorian non-professional premiere production, which will  leap on to the stage of the National Theatre from 10-25 May 2024.
