Everybody’s Talking About Jamie at New Theatre Oxford

divider

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 is coming to Oxford.

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.

Starring Ivano Turco in the title role, Rebecca McKinnis as Jamie’s mother, Margaret and Shobna Gulati as Margaret’s best mate, Ray, the Oxford cast will be joined by Darren Day as Jamie’s fabulous mentor Hugo, AKA Loco Chanelle.

Set to an original score of catchy pop tunes 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.
