ON NOW Toronto is ready to embrace a young boy and his inspirational love of dance as Billy Elliot the Musical comes to the stage. Based on the hit British film of the same name, this production—already hailed by critics and audiences on both sides of the Atlantic—follows a working-class lad who trades his boxing gloves for ballet shoes, despite his family’s disapproval. Thrilling choreography and a score by Elton John complement this story of perseverance and personal discovery. Canon Theatre, Tuesday to Saturday 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 1:30 p.m., $26 to $200; call 416-872-1212 or navigate here to buy.
