Article Pixel

Everybody's Talking About Jamie, the smash-hit, critically acclaimed West End musical has announced the full casting for its first ever UK tour.

The cast will include the previously announced Layton Williams (Bad Education, Beautiful People, Billy Elliot the Musical) who currently stars as Jamie in the West End and EastEnders' much-loved Shane Richie who played Hugo/Loco Channelle in the West End earlier in 2019. They are joined by Shobna Gulati (Coronation Street, Dinnerladies, Eveybody's Talking about Jamie West End and upcoming film) as Ray and George Sampson (winner of Britain's Got Talent) as Dean.

Further cast includes Amy Ellen Richardson (Margaret New), Lara Denning (Miss Hedge), Sharan Phull (Pritti Pasha), Cameron Johnson (Sandra Bullock / Jamie's Dad), John Paul McCue (Laika Virgin), Rhys Taylor (Tray Sophisticay), Richard Appiah-Sarpong (Cy), Simeon Beckett (Levi), Kazmin Borrer (Vicki), Ellis Brownhill (Mickey), Jodie Knight (Fatimah), Jessica Meegan (Bex), Talia Palamathanan (Becca), Adam Taylor (Sayid), Alex Hetherington (Swing), Emma Robotham-Hunt (Swing), Ellie Leah (Understudy) and Garry Lee (Understudy).

Nica Burns, Producer of Everybody's Talking About Jamie said: "We are delighted that our first national tour of Everybody's Talking About Jamie is packed with West End stars. Three hot off the Apollo stage who are joined by a host of super- talented performers from other West End casts, from The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole to Matilda The Musical and Scrooge. It's fantastic to welcome George Sampson who shot to fame as the youngest person to win Britain's Got Talent at the tender age of 14. Together they will give you a fun, funny and fabulous evening."

Layton, Shane and Shobna will be reprising their roles from the West End production. Shobna will also be starring as Ray in the film version of Everybody's Talking About Jamie which will be released in cinemas in October 2020.

The tour commences in February 2020 in Sheffield, where the show is set and first opened four years ago. Everybody's Talking About Jamie continues to run at the Apollo Theatre in the West End where it is currently booking until 29 August 2020.

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, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been wowing audiences and critics alike. Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
