Inspired by a true story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the award-winning hit musical that everybody is talking about.
Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in.
Jamie is terrified about the future. He is going to be a sensation.
Supported by his brilliant loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight.
Noah Thomas, Melissa Jacques, Sejal Keshwala and Hiba Elchikhe are joined by Preeya Kalidas as Miss Hedge with RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio / Roy Haylock returning as Loco Chanelle /Hugo for a limited season.
They lead a twenty-five strong company and a nine-piece band that will ‘sweep you away on a tide of mischief, warmth and exuberance’ (Financial Times).
With ‘songs that have the wow factor’ (The Times) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and ‘hilarious’ book and lyrics ‘with delightful punch’ (Whatsonstage), by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, feel-good, musical sensation is now in its third fabulous year at the Apollo Theatre.
