Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will return for a second U.K. Tour, launching with performances at The Lowry in Salford, England September 7. The tour is scheduled to continue into 2024.
The tour has scheduled stops in Sunderland, Nottingham, Bromley, Cardiff, Brighton, Leeds, Blackpool, Llandudno, Newcastle, Wolverhampton, and Woking, with further tour dates and casting to be announced at a later date.
Everybody's Talking About Jamie tells the true story of Jamie Campbell, who overcomes prejudice and homophobia to become a drag queen and schoolyard legend. With a book and lyrics by Tom MacRae and music by Dan Gillespie Sells, the show is based on the 2011 documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16. The work was conceived by Jonathan Butterell and directed by Matt Ryan from Butterell's original direction.
The creative team includes designer Anna Fleischle, choreographer Kate Prince, lighting designer Lucy Carter, sound designer Paul Groothuis, casting director Will Burton, music supervisor Theo Jamieson, music director Ben Holder, and video designer and Luke Halls.
The pop-driven musical premiered at the Sheffield Crucible in 2017 before transferring to London's West End later the same year. A filmed stage performance was shown in cinemas worldwide in 2018, and a full feature film was released on Amazon Prime in 2021.
The Sheffield Theatres Production of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is produced on tour by Nica Burns, Ian Osborne, Teresa and Craig Beech.
