St. Clair County Community College has announced a community trip — open to all area residents — to the Stratford Festival Theatre for a production of “Billy Elliot” with Music by Elton John on Sunday, June 23.
For $150, participants can enjoy luxury bus travel, priority seating at the theatre, a post-show chat with cast members, dinner at the scenic Marquee Restaurant overlooking the Avon River, refreshments and prizes.
“I think these trips are a great opportunity for our college and community to come together and share in some truly special cultural experiences,” says Bonnie DiNardo, SC4’s director of community education and relations.
Located in Stratford, Ontario, the Stratford Festival Theatre is North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company, presenting a dozen or more productions across four distinct venues each year.
“Billy Elliot” is set in a mining town riven by a bitter national strike, where 11-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 — reimagined for Stratford — really packs a punch.
Space is limited. Those interested must register by June 16. Visit sc4.edu/trips to learn more and secure their spot.
