 Landmark Community Theatre presents BILLY ELLIOT the Musical at the Thomaston Opera House

THOMASTON - Billy Elliot the Tony Award winning Best Musical, based on the 2000 film, comes to the main stage July 9th through July 24th. Featuring a score by music legend Elton John, Billy Elliot is an astonishing theatrical experience set in a northern English mining town, against the background of the 1984 miners' strike. Charlie Pelletier (Terryville) stars as Billy Elliot, of which his life parallels that of the main character. Charlie, in eighth grade attending Waterbury Arts Magnet School, is a trained dancer, whose recent credits include “Fritz” (Nutcracker) and “Jesus” (Godspell Jr.) at WAMS, in addition to a Season 3 episode of TLC’s Dance Moms. Bullied for his love of dancing, of which he has been practicing for over 9 years, that all changed when he was profiled in the Republican American in 2013. Since then, he has garnered over 4,000 followers on Instagram and has become a recurrent Broadway auditioner, trying for parts in “Matilda.” Under the Direction of Katherine Ray, who last directed “Young Frankenstein” at Landmark, with Music Direction by Michael Berkeley and Choreography by Jeri Kansas (both newcomers to the Thomaston Opera House stage) Charlie has exceled in the role, adding a new talent of ‘singing’ to his repertoire. Don’t miss this amazing raw portrait of a young boy’s ambitious pursuit of his dreams, told through song and dance.   

LCT is excited to share this visually stunning musical with audiences of all ages. Come enjoy the experience of quality live theater in a historic Connecticut landmark showing July 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 8pm and July 10, 17, and 24 at 2pm.
