The massive under-floor structure required for the initial production has been redesigned to allow the production to be staged in arts centres such as the Adelaide. This brilliant, heart-warming musical takes the audience on an unforgettable journey and leaves you feeling on top of the world. We are so happy that Adelaide can finally experience and fall in love with Billy Elliot the Musical,'' said Withers on behalf of the producers.
