WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Billy Elliot: The Musical premiered in London in 2005 and opened on Broadway in 2008, where it ran through 2012. Set in a northern English mining town during the 1984 miners' strike, the show tells the story of a young boy's struggle against the odds to make his dream come true. Follow Billy's journey as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and community and changes his life forever.
This production is a regional premiere of the show featuring West Potomac High School student Natalie Edwards, who was a cast member of the Billy Elliot national tour.
