Tour of hit musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie to resume

THE award-winning feel good musical sensation Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will recommence its UK tour, visiting Southampton next year.

West End star Layton Williams will reprise the role of Jamie New on stage at Mayflower Theatre between January 4 and 8, 2022.

Roy Haylock, also known as his drag alter ego Bianca Del Rio, winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race will play Hugo/Loco Chanelle. Shobna Gulati (Coronation Street, Dinnerladies) also re-joins the cast to play Ray.

Nica Burns, producer of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, said: “We are back! The company of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is absolutely delighted to be sharing our fun, funny, and fabulous musical with audiences around the UK. So dust off your glad rags, put on your heels and enjoy a fantastic night out. You’ve waited long enough!”

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, it’s based on a true story and has been wowing audiences and critics alike.

Tickets are on sale now at mayflower.org.uk or 023 8071 1811.
