Strut inside rehearsals of new coming-of-age musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

Take a first look inside the rehearsal room of new coming-of-age musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

A story with a twist, it features catchy new songs by The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae.

From an idea by Jonathan Butterell, the show makes its musical premiere this month at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre. It’s directed by Jonathan Butterell and follows Jamie — He’s sixteen. He’s from Sheffield. And he has a secret.

He doesn’t quite fit in at school. His Dad’s left home. He’s about to sit his GCSEs. The future is terrifying. With his brilliant mum behind him, will Jamie be brave enough to stand up for who he really wants to be?

John McCrea will star as Jamie alongside Tamsin Carroll as Miss Hedge.

They’re joined by Daniel Anthony (Levi), Mina Anwar (Leigh), Luke Baker (Dean), Courtney Bowman (Fatimah), Charles Dale (Hugo), Raj Ghatak (Sandra Bollock), Barney Hudson (Mickey), Gabrielle Brooks (Becca), James Gillan (Tray Sophisticay), Kush Khanna (Salah), John McCrea (Jamie), Harriet Payne (Bex), Shiv Rabheru (Callum), Lucie Shorthouse (Pritti), Kirstie Skivington (Vicki and Dance Captain), Spencer Stafford (Laika Virgin / Jamie’s Dad) and Josie Walker (Margaret).

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie begins performances at the Crucible Theatre 8 February, 2017, and is a Sheffield Theatres production.
