Billy Elliot the Musical — Winner of 10 Tonys, Score by Elton John
Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Segerstrom Hall (Costa Mesa, CA)
Set to what the New York Post called Elton John’s “best score yet,” and named “Broadway Musical of the Decade” by TIME magazine, Billy Elliot the Musical comes to Segerstrom Hall. Based on the hit film, this joyous show is about a motherless boy in a small, poverty-stricken mining town who trades his boxing gloves for ballet shoes and fights against social pressure and stereotypes to achieve his dream of becoming a dancer. Billy Elliott is brought to life by a phenomenal cast of performers as well as the Tony-winning creative team whose charming production has won over critics, swept awards ceremonies and delighted over six million audience members worldwide.
