Billy Elliot the Musical is about a young boy growing up in Manchester in the mid-80s during the coal miner's strike. He is enrolled in boxing classes but finds his way into a nearby ballet class where he is the only boy. Week after week, he spends the money his father meant for boxing on ballet, until the boxing coach tells Billy's father that Billy hasn't attended his class in weeks. When his father finds out where he's been spending the money, he forbids his son to dance anymore. Billy's dance instructor, recognizing his talent, encourages him to continue their lessons in private, and trains him for an audition with the Royal Ballet School in London. Billy's father keeps him from attending the audition and Billy decides to quite dancing altogether.
In this musical, Billy must overcome the poverty of his childhood, the narrow-mindedness of his community and his own uncertainty about his talent, but with his father eventually supporting him, he attends the audition in London.
