Theater Fans Won’t Want to Miss “Billy Elliot” at Signature Theatre

Whether you go to the theater on a regular basis or only once in a while, you won’t want to miss Billy Elliot in its current run at Arlington’s Signature Theatre. The theatre’s intimate seating chart wraps around the stage and guarantees that you’ll be close to the action, no matter where you are seated. 

That’s especially important at a show like Billy Elliot, which is famed for both its music and its dancing. The story follows young Billy who wants desperately to become a ballet dancer, but faces opposition from his family and others in his working class mining town, who expect him to follow the same path as his father and brothers. The show explores Billy’s struggle to be true to himself, while also negotiating the difficult terrain of family and community expectations. The award-winning musical is running now through January 6, and tickets are selling fast, so be sure to reserve yours soon.
