And then you’ll have until August 21, 2011 to catch the SHN play version of Billy at our Orpheum Theatre.


Debut of Billy Elliot at the Orpheum Theatre a Huge Success – You Can’t Not Like This Show!

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

No matter where you fit in as a fan of the Theatre, you’re going to love Billy Elliot, now playing at SHN’s Orpheum Theatre through September 17th, 2011.

And the glowing reviews are in already, from Albert Goodwyn, for one:

“This inspirational musical celebrates a dream come true. SHN’s traveling production is seamlessly orchestrated and performed with a high level of polish. The musicians in the pit, led by Maestro Jon Rose on piano, found every nuance and compositional gesture of Elton John’s music.”

O.K. then.

And the Twitterers, well they liked it too:

“Wow! Bravo to @shnsfBilly Elliot cast! I left the theatre wanting to go dancing!!”

You’re going to love Billy Elliot.

(And if you go to the box office at 8th and Market, you really can tickets for just $35, no fees, no nothing.)

All right, see you there!
