Billy Elliot: The Musical, the musical the world fell in love with, has won critical acclaim, including the Tony Award for “Best Musical.” This dance-filled sensation takes place during the mid-1980s coal miners’ strike in North England.
Motherless, 11 year-old Billy trades in his boxing gloves for ballet shoes and discovers a hidden and extraordinary gift, a talent that he keeps from his father and brother as the strike begins to escalate and becomes all-encompassing for his family. Against all odds and, initially to the disdain of his family, Billy becomes an inspiration not only to those closest to him, but to the entire town.
Billy Elliot: The Musical will be at the Fulton Theatre in Lancaster, now through October 16, 2016. Details and showtimes can be found online at www.thefulton.org.
