If you've yet to hear of the success of Billy Elliot the musical, then you must have been living under some large rock for the past 14 years. Winning our hearts in film form back in 2000, the story of Billy Elliot was adapted for stage and has gone on to impress audiences around the world, winning countless Tony and Olivier awards.
Resonating with anyone who's ever longed to pursue their dreams, Billy Elliot is set in a northern mining town, against the backdrop of the mid 80s miners' strike. We meet Billy as he's grappling with life in the boxing ring, when he'd really rather spend his time doing what he loves: dancing. Joining a ballet class, Billy discovers his passion for dance. His life then changes forever.
Without wanting to ruin the magic of the story in its entirety, best book yourself some tickets to catch it live in cinema. Billy Elliot will be showing exclusively in Antrim, Cork, Dundonald, Dublin Rathmines, Kennedy, Limerick, Lisburn, Newry Omniplex’s.
