Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, the smash-hit, critically acclaimed West End musical is to embark on its first UK tour in 2020. Initial casting includes West End star Layton Williams as Jamie New and EastEnders’ much-loved Shane Richie as Hugo / Loco Chanelle. Both Layton and Shane will be reprising their roles from the West End production. The tour commences in February 2020 in Sheffield, where the show is set and first opened four years ago.

Further casting to be announced.

Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield.

Jamie doesn’t quite fit in.
Jamie is terrified about the future.
Jamie 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. With catchy songs by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and book and lyrics by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been wowing audiences and critics alike. Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie opened at the Sheffield Crucible in 2017 and is currently playing at the Apollo Theatre in the West End, booking until 25 January 2020.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is being made into a major film, starring Max Harwood, Richard E. Grant, Sharon Horgan and Sarah Lancashire, by Sheffield based production company Warp Films, New Regency and Film4 completing the fairy-tale journey from a 16-year-old approaching a documentary maker to hit West End Show and now the big screen.
