It’s hard to imagine that such big dreams can grow within a failing mining town, but Billy Elliot the Musical at the Stratford Festival will prove that circumstance doesn’t define greatness. Fall in love with a boy who dares to dream (and dance!) despite the complex emotions he must overcome due to his town’s socioeconomic turmoil and personal family strife.
The Stratford Festival breathes new life into this time-tested musical that puts moves to some of the best-loved music of Elton John. So, if you want to see talent-with-heart shine onstage, book your tickets to Billy Elliot today and prepare for a dance-filled tomorrow.
A Young Boy, a Big Dream and An Inspirational Story
Billy Elliot is a 2000 British dance drama about a boy who, against all odds, performs his way through unlikely circumstances to take the English ballet stage by storm. The plot begins with 11-year-old Billy who lives with a widowed father and is expected to walk in his brother’s steel-toed boots. But rather than establishing himself as a miner, all this young boy wants to do is dance.
When Billy takes his first ballet class, he immediately recognizes his passion for performance and decides all the flack he will inevitably take will be worthwhile to discover just how far his high-flying feet can take him.
The Stratford Festival’s Most Anticipated Musical
The Stratford Festival, quite literally, puts their best feet forward in this contagious musical. Up-and-coming star, Nolen Dubuc, shines as Billy Elliot and he is kept in good company by seasoned professionals, Dan Chameroy and Blythe Wilson.
Like the cast, Stratford’s creative team, which includes award-winning director and choreographer – Donna Force, comes out swinging with impressive staging and dance numbers that will stay with you long after the curtain closes.
