Dream and sing along with "Billy Elliot"

Billy Elliot comes from a family of coal miners, but dreams of becoming a ballet dancer even though his father wants him to be a boxer. Combine that story line with a score by music legend Elton John and you’ve got a smash musical. It takes the stage May 4-20 at the Civic Auditorium, 329 S. Park St.

Billy Elliot: The Musical, which is based on the hit international film, is the inspirational story of a young boy's struggle against the odds to make his wish come true. It’s set in a northern English mining town against the backdrop of the 1984 miners' strike.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. May 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19 and 2 p.m. May 6, 13 and 20. For more information or to buy tickets, visit or call 343-1313.
