Initial casting announced for award-winning hit musical
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie
visiting Sunderland Empire from
19-23 September 2023
Following a record-breaking three-year West End residency, sold out UK & Ireland Tour and Amazon studios award-winning film, the smash-hit and critically acclaimed musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie announces initial casting for its second UK & Ireland tour which visits Sunderland Empire from Tuesday 19 – Saturday 23 September 2023.
We thank all our audiences for the incredible reception they have given us and look forward to sharing our joyful musical once again on tour round the UK”.
John Partridge said: “I have loved this show since the first time I saw it. Never before has an LGBTQ+ musical, a story that at its heart is about diversity and inclusion, been more relevant. The fact that I get to kick off this UK tour in Manchester, the place of my birth, and bring it back to the West End is a full circle moment. Excited and honoured.”
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.
This ‘Funny, outrageous, touching’ (Daily Telegraph) musical sensation is to be experienced by all the family and not to be missed!
Set to an original score of catchy pop tunes that will ‘blow the roof off the theatre’ (Mail on Sunday) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae (Doctor Who). Choreographed by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince (Into The Woods, Some Like It Hip Hop, SYLVIA, Message In A Bottle). This ‘sparking coming-of-age musical’ (The Times) will have everybody talking about Jamie for years to come.
Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
