Your showtune for March 5 is

“Solidarity” – Billy Elliot

Music: Elton John   Lyrics: Lee Hall

The UK miners’ strike of 1984-85 officially began on this day and provides the backdrop for this moving show about a working class neighborhood amidst considerable strife and a young boy who finds his calling in an unconventional activity.  During this song, the town stays unified and faces riot police while Billy excels at ballet.
