About the showSheffield Theatres’ smash-hit coming-of-age musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie transfers to the West End, following a critically acclaimed run at Sheffield Crucible. Created by Dan Gillespie Sells and Tom MacRae, the new British musical plays at London’s Apollo Theatre, produced by Nica Burns.
Based on a documentary, the modern day fairy tale follows Jamie, a sixteen year old boy struggling to find his feet after his dad leaves. Residing on a Sheffield council estate and never quite fitting in at school, Jamie is surely bound for something better. With the loving support of his Mum and friends, the sensational Jamie overcomes bullies and prejudice to find his way into the spotlight.
Noah Thomas plays the role of Jamie, taking over from Layton Williams, alongside Melissa Jaques as Margaret New, Sejal Keshwala as Ray and Hiba Elchikhe as Pritti Pasha. Popular TV comedian Katy Brand is currently playing the role of Miss Hedge. Until 30th May, screen and stage comedian Rufus Hound will play Hugo/Loco, following in the high-heeled footsteps of Shane Richie and Bianca Del Rio.
With music by Dan Gillespie Sells and lyrics and a book by Tom MacRae, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is directed by Jonathan Butterell and features design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by Lucy Carter and sound design by Paul Groothius, with choreography by Kate Prince.
A brand new, uplifting musical that sees prejudices blasted away in the midst of a fearful modern society, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie plays at London’s Apollo Theatre to packed-out audiences.
