Billy Elliot the Musical will return to Australia in 2019 for its 10th Anniversary Tour.
The hugely successful West End musical premiered in Australia in 2007 as the first international production outside of the UK, prior to its Broadway premiere. With the first Australian tour concluding in Melbourne in 2009, this new 10th Anniversary Tour kicks off in 2019, ten years after the curtain came down in Australia.
Billy Elliot enjoyed huge critical acclaim with Sydney and Melbourne audiences flocking to the theatre. However the physical design was so complex at the time, that touring beyond those two cities was not possible. Now with some adjustments, the producers are delighted that this stage production is able to tour to other Capital Cities.
Billy Elliot the Musical will open at Sydney Lyric Theatre in October 2019, followed by planned seasons in Melbourne at the Regent Theatre from February 2020, Crown Theatre Perth from June 2020, QPAC's Lyric Theatre in Brisbane from July 2020 and the Festival Theatre at Adelaide Festival Centre from September 2020.
