After a phenomenal eleven years on the West End, 4,600 spectacular performances and entertaining an audience of more than 5.25 million people, the much-loved Billy Elliot the Musical is to draw its final curtain at the Victoria Palace Theatre

The final performance of the multi award-winning show will take place on 9 April 2016

Due to a refurbishment programme at the Victoria Palace Theatre, the multi award-winning production will end its long-standing run at the West End theatre, coinciding with the show’s eleventh birthday.

The musical is based on the Oscar-nominated 2000 film about 11-year-old Billy Elliot, the son of a coal miner in the North of England. When Billy stumbles across a ballet class, the Elliot’s lives are changed forever.

The musical is brought to life by the director Stephen Daldry, writer Lee Hall and choreographer Peter Darling, the award-winning creative team behind the film.

According to the show’s producers:

“The final performance of Billy Elliot the Musical will take place on 9 April 2016 after what will have been 4,600 performances, and 11 years at its London home. The producers of the show would like to thank the 5.25 million audience members who have seen the show in London to date and the nearly 11 million people who have seen the show around the globe so far.”

“Ticket holders for performances after 9 April 2016 should contact your point of purchase as soon as possible to discuss transferring your tickets into another performance or to arrange a full ticket refund,” added the producers.
