Everybody's Talking About Jamie

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie comes to Sunderland Empire

After an unprecedented three-year run in London’s West End, a highly successful tour across the UK and Ireland with sold-out shows, and recognition for its award-winning film adaptation by Amazon Studios, the immensely popular and praised musical ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ is coming to the North East!

This September, the smash-hit and critically acclaimed musical is rolling into Sunderland Empire and we can’t wait to be mesmerised by the live on-stage action.

Set to an original score of catchy pop tunes by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae (Doctor Who). Choreographed by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince (Into The Hoods, Some Like It Hip Hop, SYLVIA, Message In A Bottle). This sparkling coming-of-age musical will have everybody talking about Jamie for years to come.


What’s it about?

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.
