Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (Teen Edition) is a coming of age musical with music by Dan Gillespie Sells and book and lyrics by Tom MacRae. The show is based on the true-life story of 16-year-old British schoolboy Jamie Campbell, as he overcomes prejudice and bullying to step out of the darkness and into the spotlight to become a fearless, fierce drag queen!

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.

Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
