Catherine B. Berges Theatre and Virtual

Experience the first COCA Summer Musical in the The Berges Theatre—or from your own home— with Billy Elliot! Our summer musical features some of the best triple-threat talent in St. Louis with COCA’s leading performers, local apprentice actors, and regional professional performers all coming together under the direction of Nancy Bell for an uplifting and energetic theatre experience you don’t want to miss.

The Story:
Set in a village in northeast England during the miners’ strike of 1984/5, Billy Elliot tells the story of a young boy who transcends class and circumstance to become a ballet star.

The show follows Billy’s journey from boxing ring to ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that unites his family, inspires his community and changes his life. The powerful melodies of Elton John’s score take us on the journey of a child’s emotional struggle. Based on the acclaimed film and garnering Tony, Drama Desk and Oliver Awards—Billy Elliot is a heartwarming and triumphant tale.
