San Diego Music Theatre and California Ballet Company showcase exceptional talent in the powerful, poignant story of Billy Elliott. The 10-year-old boy from a working class town in Thatcher-era Britain stumbles into a ballet class. His natural talent for dance emerges, but he must fight opposition from his family and community to reach his full potential. Charlie Garton inspires as Billy, demonstrating extraordinary talent as a dancer/actor/singer for such a young age. Other ensemble members perform tremendously well, but Garton shines brightest.Critic's Pick.
