Billy Elliot - Youth Music Theatre UK

Billy Elliot Competition!

10/04/15

Win a pair of top-price tickets to the smash-hit musical!

It’s Billy’s birthday! On Tuesday 12 May, Billy Elliot the Musical marks 10 years in the West End. One of the most celebrated, award-winning musicals on stage today, Billy Elliot has been dazzling London since 2005, and has gone on to captivate audiences around the world. Now we’re offering Youth Music Theatre UK members the chance to see the show in its 10th birthday year, with a pair of top price tickets up for grabs.

Set in a northern mining town, against the background of the 1984/85 miners’ strike, Billy Elliot the Musical is the inspirational story of a young boy’s struggle against the odds to make his dream come true. Follow Billy’s journey as he stumbles 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. With unforgettable music by Elton John, sensational dance and a powerful storyline, Billy Elliot the Musical is an astonishing theatrical experience will stay with you forever.

We've moved into the stunning Reuben Foundation Wing - a £20 million redevelopment plan that sees the Lyric Hammersmith become a cultural hub for young people in West London. We're joining eight other brilliant organisations with YMT being the delivery partner for musical theatre (because that's our thaaaang!) Over the next few months we'll be running some incredible workshops on The Explore Programme in acting, singing and dancing as well as our inaugural Youth Music Theatre Orchestra concert with some very special guests!
