Sunday October 5

Billy Elliott The Musical is set to bring cinema goers to their feet when the global stage phenomenon is broadcast from London's West End to cinemas across Australia for the very first time.

The special London performance will be filmed live on September 28 and screened in Australian cinemas nationwide on Sunday October 5 for one day only.

Based on the Academy Award® nominated film, Billy Elliot The Musical has been dazzling London's theatregoers at the Victoria Place Theatre since 2005, and has gone on to captivate audiences around the world, winning over 80 theatre awards globally including 10 Tony Awards® and 5 Olivier Awards.

Set in a northern mining town, against the background of the 1984/'85 miners' strike, Billy Elliot is the inspirational story of a young boy's struggle against the odds to make his dream come true. Billy's journey takes him out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and whole community and changes his life forever.

The internationally celebrated show, which has now been seen by over 9.5 million people worldwide, is brought to life by the multiple award-winning creative team behind the film, including music legend Elton John who composed the show's score.

On May 12 this year, Billy Elliot the Musical celebrated its 9th birthday. To date, 37 boys have played the role of Billy Elliot in London.
