Dan Gillespie Sells and Tom MacRae’s new coming-of-age musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie transfers to the West End, following rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Previously enjoying a smash-hit run at Sheffield Crucible, the production comes to London’s Apollo Theatre for a run beginning in November.

Based on a true documentary, the musical follows a sixteen year old boy from a council estate in Sheffield who struggles to fit in at school. Terrified about the future and trying to find his feet after his Dad leaves home, Jamie is destined to become something sensational. Supported by his dedicated Mum and multiple friends, Jamie finds a way to overcome prejudice and beat the bullies, fearlessly making his way into the centre spotlight.

Newcomer and Mountview student Noah Thomas stars as Jamie New. He is joined by Melissa Jacques (Kinky Boots) as Margaret New, comedian and TV personality Katy Brand as Miss Hedge, Rufus Hound (The Boy in the Dress, Wind in the Willows) as Hugo/Loco Chanelle, Sejal Keshwala (Bend it Like Beckham) as Ray and Hiba Elchikhe (Aladdin) as Pritti.

Layton Williams (RENT, Bad Education), who played his last performance as Jamie in London on January 4th, will be leading the UK tour, which begins performances in Sheffield in February.

Comedian Katy Brand plays Miss Hedge until June 20th - she will not appear at Monday performances. Rufus Hound will play the role of Hugo/Loco Channelle from March 16th through to May 30th.

A new British musical created by Dan Gillespie Sells and Tom MacRae, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is brought to the West End by prolific producer Nica Burns. Directed by Jonathan Butterell, the production features design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound design by Paul Groothius and choreography by Kate Prince.

A brilliantly uplifting story of facing your fears in modern society, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie transferred to the Apollo Theatre for a run beginning 6th November 2017, with an official opening night on 22nd November 2017.
