On July 8-12 Music Theatre Wichita brings the exhilarating story of a adolescent’s triumphant self-expression to Wichita audiences. In “Billy Elliot” a pre-teen in an English mining town wanders from his boxing class into a ballet class next door, discovers a new passion and courageously confronts derision from his working class community. Powerful and theatrical score by Elton John.
