The feel-good production comes to town as part of its 10th Anniversary Australian tour.

Over ten years after the curtain fell on the Australian premiere of Billy Elliot The Musical, the award-winning production returns to Melbourne this month.

Based on the film of the same name, the West End musical tells the story of an 11-year-old boy from a small British mining town who ditches boxing to pursue ballet against the wishes of his father and brother.

Bringing the heart-warming tale to life onstage, Billy Elliot The Musical features music by Elton John, lyrics by Lee Hall and choreography by Peter Darling.

Since making its debut in London in 2005, the critically-acclaimed musical has been seen by over 12 million people across the world as well as racking up ten Tony Awards and eight Helpmann Awards among its long list of accolades.

Billy Elliot The Musical comes to Regent Theatre from Thursday February 20 until Sunday April 19. Grab your tickets here.
