In a Newcastle first, Billy Elliot the Musical will play for a strictly limited 3 week season at the Civic Theatre from 7th October!

Featuring music by the legendary Elton John, with book and lyrics by Lee Hall, Billy Elliot the Musical has been seen by over 12 million people worldwide. Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, it is the recipient of over 85 awards internationally.

Set in a northern town during the miners’ strike of 1984/5, the show follows Billy’s journey from boxing ring to ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance. Faced with the daunting path of forging out a new destiny, Billy leaves behind his close-knit community upbringing where family and tradition means everything, to unite his family, inspire his community and change his own life forever. Billy Elliot the Musical tells an electrifying tale of determination, acceptance and daring to be different.

Hailed as an extraordinary theatrical experience, the show has captivated audiences around the world, and features incredible songs such as ‘Solidarity’, ‘The Letter’, ‘He Could Be a Star’ and ‘Electricity’.
