Celebrity PicturesBy Sunday World

A whole host of famous faces were in attendance at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre last night for the Dublin premiere of Billy Elliot the Musical.

Described by Time Magazine as ‘The Best Musical of the Decade’, based on the much loved motion picture, Billy Elliot the Musical opened in the West End in 1995 and has now been seen by over 11 million people worldwide and played on 5 continents collecting 80 international awards along the way including 10 Tony Awards.

This inspirational musical follows Billy in his triumph over adversity.

Set in 1980’s Northern England the story reflects the social unrest of the time and the political class war between the ruling class Tory government led by Margaret Thatcher and the working class coal miners who had made Britain great, since the dawning of the industrial revolution.

This story of struggling against the odds is very much a story which still resonates today. 

BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL will play at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre until September 3rd 2016.

Limited tickets are still available.
