About this event :
It’s summertime and that usually makes people want to get out of town and we like to make that happen! Whether it’s Shaw Festival or Stratford, residents have their say in choosing what they want to see and where they want to go. This outing is for one of the big success stories at Stratford: Billy Elliot the Musical. even though it’s not one of their mainstream productions.
“Dreams don’t come easy in the hardscrabble mining town, riven by a bitter national strike, where eleven-year-old Billy lives with his bereaved family. But Billy’s discovery of his talent for dance awakens in him a passion that will transform his life and win the hearts of his whole community.
With its inspirational story, moving dance numbers and music by pop legend Elton John, this gritty new take on the smash-hit show – reimagined for Stratford – really packs a punch.” https://www.stratfordfestival.ca/WhatsOn/PlaysAndEvents/Production/Billy-Elliot
