Billy The Kid Facebook.jpg

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.

Our BRAND NEW musical is playing from 23rd to 27th August 2017 at the Curve, Leicester, and is being produced and performed by the National Youth Music Theatre


We'll be joined on the journey by the incredible Kate Golledge, director of this year's THE BATTLE OF BOAT, and 2015's PRODIGY. 


A great many tales have been told about that marvellous, mischievous gunslinging outlaw known the world over as Billy the Kid, many more tales than a wise man would ever care to count, and all of them are true, even the lies. This one is no different...
