Stratford Day Trip
Saturday, November 02, 2019



Let's go to the Stratford Festival

Ontario, Canada!


Saturday, November 2nd

2 pm Matinee Performance


We will see Elton John's Smash Hit

"Billy Elliot the Musical" 

 Billy Elliot 450x260



Dreams don’t come easy in the hardscrabble mining town, riven by a bitter national strike, where eleven-year-old Billy lives with his bereaved family. But Billy’s discovery of his talent for dance awakens in him a passion that will transform his life and win the hearts of his whole community.

With its inspirational story, moving dance numbers and music by pop legend Elton John, this gritty new take on the smash-hit show – re-imagined for Stratford – really packs a punch.
