The 783-seat National Theatre in St Kilda, Melbourne

​CLOC Musical Theatre in Melbourne, Australia, will host the Victorian non-professional premiere of Billy Elliot The Musical (BETM) at the National Theatre in St Kilda from May 10 to 25, 2024.

CLOC Musical Theatre is one of Victoria’s largest and most successful non-professional music theatre companies. Established in 1964, CLOC commenced performing in church halls and on school stages prior to moving to the Alexander Theatre at Monash University with its 500 seat auditorium. After performing for 38 years at the Alexander Theatre, in 2010 CLOC relocated to its current performance venue – the historical 783 seat ‘The National Theatre Melbourne’ in St Kilda.

Over the years, CLOC has staged over 100 productions, including some notable firsts. In 1983 CLOC premiered Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd – the first professional or non-professional production in Australia.  And in May 2013, CLOC presented the world non-professional premiere production of The Phantom of the Opera.

Other recent productions have included: Priscilla Queen of the Desert (2021), Jersey Boys (2022), Chicago (2022), Catch Me If You Can (2023), and most recently CHESS (2023) 

The full cast for CLOC Musical Theatre’s production of BETM was announced in November 2023.  It was announced that the lead role of Billy would be played in rotation by two boys — Lukas Elliott and Sebastian Sero.
