“Best musical of the decade” Time Magazine

Thrilling audiences worldwide and winning ten 2009 Tony® Awards including Best Musical, “The best show you will ever see” (New York Post) is coming to Ottawa! Billy Elliot the Musical is a joyous celebration of one young boy’s journey to make his dreams come true. Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls Billy Elliot the Musical “The most inspiring show I have seen in years.” Set in a small town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a surprising passion that inspires his family and his whole community.

Based on the international smash-hit film, Billy Elliot the Musical is brought to life by a phenomenal cast of 45 and the Tony® Award-winning creative team -- director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall -- along with music legend Elton John, who has written what the New York Post calls “His best score yet!” A big musical with an even bigger heart, Billy Elliot the Musical will enchant the dreamer in all of us.
