Inspired by a true story, Everybody's Talking About Jamie is the award-winning hit musical for today – up to date, more relevant than ever and specially updated for the times we live in today.

Jamie New is 16 and lives on a council estate in Sheffield.

Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. He is going to be a sensation.

Nica Burns, producer of Everybody's Talking About Jamie, said: "We are back. The company of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is absolutely delighted to be sharing our fun, funny, and fabulous musical with audiences around the UK.

"So dust off your glad rags, put on your heels and enjoy a fantastic night out. You have waited long enough.”

Everybody's Talking About Jamie has also been made into a major film by New Regency, Film4 and Sheffield-based production company Warp Films starring Max Harwood, Sarah Lancashire, Lauren Patel, Shobna Gulati, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar, Samuel Bottomley, with Sharon Horgan and Richard E. Grant.

The stage production’s director, Jonathan Butterell, makes his feature-film debut as director. Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will be distributed by 20th Century Studios.

Tickets for Everybody's Talking About Jamie at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, between October 5 and 9, are on sale now. To book, or for more information, visit
