BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL – ORIGINAL CAST RECORDING

Set in the 1980s during the miners strike, a young boy from a struggling north eastern community is living with the hardships of the time, when he happens to come across a ballet class.

CHARLIE: I think Billy Elliot is special because the story is so inspiring and relatable to most people. The show feels more intimate than most others so you connect with the characters more. The soundtrack is so touching and the talent from the cast is incredible…And I’ve seen it 40 times!

NATHAN: I’ve not seen Billy live yet. But I’ve listened to this cast recording multiple times, and seen the Billy Elliot LIVE DVD. Billy is such a special show to young dancers, especially boys, whom from a young age are taught that ballet is strictly for girls, and gay men. Billy breaks the gender norm and shows that no matter what, you should follow dreams. I can’t wait to see it on tour.
