SCREENING | EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE | FRIDAY 17 AUGUST

‘This fizzling musical is a blast of fresh air’ ~ The Times 

 

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.

Once upon a time, there was a 16-year-old boy who had a secret he wanted to tell…

So, he approached a documentary filmmaker as you do, and asked if they would help him tell it. The resulting documentary was seen by a theatre director and it inspired him to create a musical. A producing regional theatre backed him. He then bumped into a famous musical theatre star who introduced him to a well-known pop composer who was working with a lyricist and book writer. The theatre put on the production. A major producer saw it and offered them a West End theatre.

The play was Winner of 3 WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical and nominated for 5 Olivier Awards.
