THE HIT MUSICAL FOR TODAY
THE TIMES | FINANCIAL TIMES | THE INDEPENDENT | TIME OUT | DAILY EXPRESS
The multi-award-winning smash-hit musical comes to Hall for Cornwall, featuring West End star Layton Williams and EastEnders’ much-loved Shane Richie as Hugo/Loco Chanelle both reprising their roles from the critically acclaimed West End production.
Funny, fabulous and feelgood, this is the musical sensation for all the family and not to be missed!
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 an original score of catchy pop tunes by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae (Doctor Who), this brand-new musical will have everybody talking about Jamie for years to come. Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
'IT’S THE REAL DEAL. EVERYONE REALLY SHOULD BE TALKING, SINGING, SHOUTING ABOUT JAMIE NOW'
'SWEEPS YOU AWAY ON A TIDE OF MISCHIEF, WARMTH AND EXUBERANCE'
'A JOYOUS PUNCH IN THE AIR ABOUT FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS AND BEING YOURSELF'
'IRRESISTIBLE: A JOYOUS, LIFE-AFFIRMING BILLY ELLIOT'
