Following last year’s performance of Spring Awakening, Associate Artists National Youth Music Theatre return to Curve with this blockbuster new musical for all ages.
William Antrim is small for his age; he’s quiet and shy, which makes him an easy target for lazy bullies. But in his dreams, William Antrim is Billy the Kid, a courageous cowboy, riding the range with the sun in his eyes. An all-American hero. Now, if only his dreams could become a reality…
Billy the Kid is an adventure story, a magical, musical comedy set in a colourful world of cowboys and bandits, cactus trees and caballeros. Saddle up for a journey back in time, to a land where the bravest heroes are only a whip-crack away! This is a show for all the family, smart enough for the most demanding young audience and silly enough for the grumpiest grown ups.
For 40 years, the award-winning National Youth Music Theatre has represented the best work with young people in musical theatre, leading Andrew Lloyd Webber to describe it as “the best youth music theatre in the world“.
