Cheap Billy Elliot The Musical tickets at the Victoria Palace Theatre
Billy Elliot is a funny, moving, feel-good celebration of hope and the power of dreams. Adapted from the classic 2000 Brit movie drama starring Jamie Bell, It’s got music and choreography to die for, plus five super-talented young actors—affectionately known as the Billies—sharing the role of the northern lad who beats prejudice and poverty to become a dancer.
Billy Elliot is one of Britain’s best loved films. Its writer Lee Hall and director Stephen Daldry also created this brilliantly presented theatrical adaptation, so it’s no wonder all the joy, grit and passion of the movie made it to the stage intact. Add soaring songs by Elton John and you have a recipe for sheer theatrical bliss.
After its original London premiere at the Victoria Palace Theatre in 2005, Billy Elliot went on to win an amazing nine awards at the 2006 Laurence Olivier Awards ceremony. Among the plaudits were Best New Musical and Best Director. The show also picked up the Evening Standard Award and the Critics Circle Award and the Theatregoers Choice Award, all for Best Musical.
Due to strong language, the show is recommended for ages 12 and up.
It’s 1984. Motherless 11-year-old Billy Elliot lives with his miner father in a northern English town at the height of the miners’ strike. His tough-but-decent dad sends Billy to boxing classes, but Billy just wants to dance.
He sneaks off to dance classes with unorthodox teacher Mrs Wilkinson, risking his dad’s anger and ridicule from his townsfolk if he’s discovered. With Mrs Wilkinson’s help, Billy has a chance of making it to the Royal Ballet School. But can he overcome the obstacles in his path?

Victoria Palace Theatre
The Victoria Palace Theatre is situated on Victoria Street in London’s Victoria, close to Victoria tube station. Built in 1911, this 1517 seat venue has a golden statue of the legendary Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova on top of its dome.
The Victoria Palace Theatre opened on November 6 1911 and was one of the last variety houses to be built in the West End. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage during its long history are Me and My Girl, Annie, High Society, Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story and Jolson.
Like any long-serving institution, the Victoria Palace Theatre has been through its fair share of changes over the years. Prior to its construction, another performance institution had stood on the present site; The Royal Standard Hotel, built in 1832.
From 1840 singing and dancing were performed on the premises, leading to the expansion of the building, which was reinvented as Moy’s Music Hall before being again renamed The Royal Standard Concert Rooms in 1854.
The venue was refurbished in 1863 and reopened as the Royal Standard Music Hall. It was enormously popular in this incarnation. So much so in fact that it became a victim of its own success and was completely demolished in 1886 in order to make way for a larger venue.
In 1910 this consistently successful music and variety hall too was levelled, and replaced with today’s Victoria Palace Theatre building, which opened the following year.
In 2006 refurbishments were carried out in the theatre, enlarging the dressing rooms, adding a new bar on the stalls level, increasing the size of the foyer and restoring the statue of Anna Pavlova to the roof of the theatre, which had gone missing during the Second World War.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Victoria Palace Theatre make it the perfect place to see musical theatre. Recent successes include Fame-The Musical, Kiss Me Kate, Grease, Tonight’s the Night and Billy Elliot the Musical.
Whatever you decide to see at the Victoria Palace Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
