Inspired by the true story of Jamie Campbell and his supportive mum Margaret, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the new award-winning five-star Hit Musical for today. A coming-of-age story with a twist, the musical celebrates acceptance and diversity, and how good life is when everyone is the best they can be.
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.
John McCrea, Josie Walker, Tamsin Carroll, Lucie Shorthouse and Phil Nichol lead a twenty-four strong company and an eight 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’.
Winner of 3 WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical and nominated for 5 Olivier Awards, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will be captured live from the Apollo Theatre in London’s Shaftesbury Avenue and brought to cinemas around the world.
