With millions of fans, thousands of standing ovations, and ten Tony Awards including Best Musical, Grandstreet is thrilled to bring this spectacular Broadway musical to life. Set in a northern English town during the 1984 miners’ strike, Billy Elliot is the inspirational story of a young boy’s struggle against the odds to make his dream come true. When Billy stumbles out of the boxing ring and into Mrs. Wilkinson’s ballet class, he discovers a passion that inspires his community and changes his life forever.
