Universal Stage Productions, Working Title Films and Old Vic Productions are delighted to announce that Billy Elliot the Musical will host an ISL (Irish Sign Language) performance on 29th August and a Captioned performance on 31st August at 7:30pm at Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin.

Based on the highly successful film, the show is set in an English northern mining town against the background of the 1984/?85 miners’ strike. It follows Billy’s journey from boxing to ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and whole community and changes his life forever.

Loved by audiences and critics, Billy Elliot the Musical has now been seen by over 10.5 million people across five continents and is the recipient of over 80 awards internationally, including ten Tony Awards and five Olivier Awards. In 2006, Liam Mower, James Lomas and George Maguire, the first three boys to play the title role, became the youngest performers ever to have won the Olivier Award for Best Actor with the show also picking up the Best Musical prize.
