Billy Elliot the Musical is a joyous celebration of one young boy’s journey to make his dreams come true based on the smash-hit independent film of the same name with music by the legendary Elton John. Set in a small town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a surprising passion that inspires his family and his whole community. On Broadway, the show won ten 2009 Tony® Awards including Best Musical and won praise from fans and critics alike, including Ben Brantley of The New York Times who called Billy Elliot, "the most inspiring show I've seen in years."


The touring musicians of Billy Elliot welcome five local musicians who will be playing at all performances in Madison:

Reed 1: Les Thimmig
Reed 2: Greg Smith
French Horn: Kristi Crago
Trumpet: Frank Hanson
