Inspired by a true story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a musical for today.

Jamie New just turned 16 and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. About to sit his GCSE’s and enter the “real world”, Jamie is excited and terrified all at the same time. Jamie is openly gay but has one secret he has yet to reveal - his dream to become a Drag Queen once he leaves school.

Supported by his amazing Mum, best friends and some of his classmates, Jamie overcomes prejudice, defies expectations, and steps into the spotlight! 

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a courageous and outrageous coming of age tale embracing authenticity and diversity, celebrating being different and defining your own standards.
Our film needs a class that reflects Sheffield’s vibrant and wide-ranging communities and young people and we need your help… We’re looking to cast up to thirty young people for our class! 

Whether you’ve only ever sung or danced in your bedroom or you’re a pro we want to hear from you!

We are looking for:

  • People aged 16 years and upward, but you must look/ be able to play 16 years.
  • There are no other parameters on how you should ‘look’ - we want you as you are! 
  • We’re looking for a variety of people to make up our exciting and talented class. 
  • You will ideally be from Sheffield or the surrounding areas (see T&Cs).

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