Billy Elliot: The Award-Winning Musical Comes to the Gold Coast!

Join the dance party! " Billy Elliot " is coming to the Gold Coast, the sensational story of 11-year-old billy and his life that is forever changed after he stumbles upon ballet for the first time.

They’re looking for a “triple threat” – someone who can sing, act, dance their heart out, and connect with the audience.

Set in a Northern English mining town during the 1984-85 miner strikes,  The story follows Billy, an 11-year-old coal miner’s son who discovers his love of dance and ballet and his battle to pursue his passion against the pressure to conform to his circumstances.

The award-winning musical isn’t just about the stunning on-stage performances but is supported by a sensational musical score written entirely by the legendary Sir Elton John.

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate is thrilled to be welcoming “Billy Elliot” to the city.
Billy Elliot is one of those stories that never leaves a dry eye, and I have no doubt Matt Ward will again produce something very special with this musical.”

Matt Ward says that the message of “Billy Elliot” is all about accepting yourself and never giving up your dreams. The story is universal and will resonate with everyone’s inner child

“Billy Elliot is a universal story that will resonate with everyone’s inner child. We all battle inner dialogue, self doubt and external pressures to live our best lives and achieve our wildest dreams”.

“Whether you want to be a musician, makeup artist, dancer – if you dare to dream it, you can do it. Don’t listen to what anyone else says, and that’s part of the message of this musical: You can do it”.
