Billy Elliot the Musical Story
Set amid a working class neighborhood in northern London, Billy Elliot the Musical is a story of how a young 11 year old boy overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to go against the norm and pursue his dream to dance.
The musical takes place during England’s 1984 Miners Strike when tensions are high and violence is a common occurrence among the miners.
Billy’s father and brother are themselves, union miners caught up in the strife of the times. When Billy stumbles upon a dancing school while in route to a boxing match, and discovers a love for dancing he never knew existed, he obviously doesn’t solicit the approval of his family.
And aside from seeking his family's acceptance, Billy is in need of financial support during a time of dire uncertainty and financial burdens that his family suffers due to the strike..
Billy Elliot the Musical is a tale of how a young boy’s dream is bigger than his current circumstance.. and how a family’s love transcends their doubts and propels them to accept what they can’t understand.
Perhaps the real draw to Billy Elliot the Musical, is the desire in all of us, to pursue our dreams... with the love and support from the ones we love the most.

Billy Elliot – Electricity Lyrics
Electricity Music by Elton John, Electricity Lyrics by Lee Hall
I can't really explain it, I haven't got the wordsIt's a feeling that you can't controlI suppose it's like forgetting, losing who you areAnd at the same time something makes you whole
It's like that there's a music, playing in your earAnd I'm listening, and I'm listening, and then I disappear
And then I feel a change, like a fire deep insideSomething bursting me wide open, impossible to hideAnd suddenly I'm flying, flying like a birdLike Electricity, electricitySparks inside of me, and I'm free, I'm free
It's a bit like being angry; it's a bit like being scaredConfused and all mixed up and mad as hellIt's like when you've been cryingAnd you're empty and you're fullI don't know what it is, it's hard to tell
It's like that there's some music, playing in your earBut the music is impossible, impossible to hear
But then I feel it move meLike a burning deep insideSomething bursting me wide openImpossible to hideAnd suddenly I'm flyingFlying like a birdLike Electricity, electricitySparks inside of meAnd I'm free, I'm free
