Hi Everybody,

I am coming from Geneva to see Billy Elliot on Saturday July 25 and I am super excited about it!

However, I was wondering whether there is a way to somehow organize a backstage tour at some point before/during/after the show. It looks like VIP tickets do not include that (if they did I would be buying them now) so I wanted to take advantage of your collective wisdom and experience and ask if there is any way (and I mean ANY way whatsoever) you may know of to organize it.

I will be very grateful for any feedback.

Many thanks!
Matt

Backstage tours are virtually non-existent at the Victoria Palace. There is no way to book such a tour that I know of.

Hi MattCH,

I note from your post that it's your first one here on the forum. I hope you'll stick around and post often. There is lots of info here and lots of good people who share a love for BETM.

Yes, welcome to the forum, Matt. I forgot to say that in my reply to you. We're glad you've found us.

I tried many, many years ago to arrange such a tour but was completely unsuccessful.

I enquired about this about 3 or 4 years ago and it was a definite ' No No'

They exist in most regional venues where BETM is put on. I think we had five while BETM was underway last summer in Ogunquit, plus one 'talk back'.

I have only walked around the outside of the VPT, but it looks as though back stage is extremely limited, in terms of space.

In The Netherlands they offer a backstage tour for 25 euros on certain days, probably because their backstage is really spacious. But it's not London of course.
