Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, the award-winning feel good musical sensation, today announces the opening of a new booking period until Saturday 29 August 2020. Dazzling audiences at London’s Apollo Theatre since November 2017 the musical celebrates its 2nd Birthday in the West End on Wednesday 6 November beginning its 3rd joyful year.
As Layton Williams, the current star, sets off from the Apollo to lead the first national tour of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, the Producers are launching a national search for an outstandingly talented undiscovered young performer to play schoolboy Jamie at the Apollo theatre from January 2020. Open auditions will be held at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield on 8 October and at the Apollo Theatre, London on 10 October.

Nica Burns, Producer, said:
Thanks to our fantastic audiences, we are delighted to be extending and playing our third year at the Apollo. We have found some fantastic young performers to join Layton Williams and Shane Richie on tour. In the spirit of this musical, we are opening the doors to unknown talent alongside today’s young professionals in the search for our new Jamie.
The first national tour of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie opens in Sheffield on 8 February 2020 and stars Layton Williams as Jamie New and Shane Richie as Hugo / Loco Chanelle who both reprise their roles from the West End.
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.
