This year we are going to take drama club to go see the musical Billy Elliot at the Pantages.
I have reserved seats for Saturday May 12 for the 2:00 PM show. Tickets are $26.36 per person. We will leave St. Philip’s around 11am and have lunch at our favorite Hollywood pizza place just down the street from the Pantages. We can only take drama club members. Tickets are first come first and when we run out that is it. Please email me if you want to come and I will reserve a ticket as well as email you a permission slip. Please make checks out to St. Philip. If I don’t receive a check AND the signed permission slip within two days of reserving your ticket I will make it available to everyone again.
Here is some information from the Pantages website:

BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL is a joyous celebration of one young boy’s journey to make his dreams come true. Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL “THE MOST INSPIRING SHOW I’VE SEEN IN YEARS.” Set in a small town, the story follows Billy as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class, discovering a surprising passion that inspires his family and his whole community. Based on the international smash-hit film, BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL is brought to life by a phenomenal cast of 45 and the Tony Award-winning creative team – director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling and writer Lee Hall – along with music legend Elton John, who has written what the New York Post calls “HIS BEST SCORE YET!” A big musical with an even bigger heart, BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL will enchant the dreamer in all of us.
