About Everybody's Talking About...

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

Jamie New is sixteen 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.

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.

Layton Williams, Melissa Jacques, Sejal Keshwala and Sabrina Sandhu are joined by EastEnders’ star Rita Simons as Miss Hedge with Phil Nichol returning to play Hugo/Loco Chanelle. They lead a twenty-five strong company and a nine-piece band that will ‘sweep you away on a tide of mischief, warmth and exuberance’ (Financial Times).

With ‘songs that have the wow factor’ (The Times) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and ‘hilarious’ book and lyrics ‘with delightful punch’ (Whatsonstage), by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been wowing audiences and critics alike.

Tell Me More

An exciting new British musical, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie tells the story of teenager Jamie and his secret desire to become a fabulous drag queen. When a teacher asks her year 11 class what they want to be when they’re older, Jamie admits he wants to be a performer but is told to get his head out of the clouds and get real. His adoring mother, Margaret, however has always had Jamie’s back and presents him with a pair of red high-heels. This is the catalyst that Jamie needed to be his true self and come out of the closet with his drag character, Mimi Me!

The songs of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie hit the highs of recognisable, energetic pop tracks but also have the emotional depths of an iconic piece of musical theatre. There’s more than a few songs that you can strut your stuff to for weeks after seeing the show!

Facing down school bully, Dean, Jamie finds support in his friends, family and drag community, helping him to step confidently into the world as his true self. The uplifting message of self-acceptance has touched the hearts of London audiences and the positive representation of both gay and muslim characters has been highly praised too. It’s a musical about loving yourself and learning that you are beautiful, inside and outside, no matter what you wear.

Your participation in any of the lotteries in the series is subject to our standard terms and conditions, which you can view here. The Promoter of this series of lotteries is TodayTix, Ltd.

This is a series of promotional prize draws and the term 'lottery'/'lotteries' is only used in a brand sense. No gambling is involved.

You can also join the lottery by posting an envelope to TodayTix, Studio 2, 123 Curtain Road, EC2A 3BX with your name, phone number and email address enclosed, along with the performance you would like to be entered for and number of tickets (maximum 2 per person). One entrant per letter, which must be received 1 business day before the performance.

  1. You must reside in the UK and be aged 18 or older to enter any of the lotteries in the series. Any entries made from outside the UK will be subject to UK law.

  2. No purchase is required to enter but if you win you will need to pay for each ticket.

  3. You can earn one extra entry into the same lottery that you have entered if you share the auto-filled post on Facebook and another if you share the auto-filled post on Twitter.

  4. All winners are drawn at random by a computerised process.

  5. There are a limited number of discounted price tickets available as prizes for each lottery in the series, which are always drawn in two stages:

    1. All tickets available are drawn at random and assigned to winners
    2. If a winner declines or fails to claim their tickets within an hour, these tickets will be re-assigned at random to another entrant

Choosing to enter for either 1 or 2 tickets holds no bearing on your chances of being drawn as a winner.

  1. When the winners are drawn for each lottery in the series, the same computer process will be used to randomly select "reserve" winners, as described in section 7 above (i.e. those who selected an individual ticket upon entry could become a "reserve" winner if one or more of the winners in stage 1 of the draw do not claim their respective ticket). If you are a "reserve" winner and the original winner does not claim the tickets, you will be sent an email 3 hours before the relevant performance to let you know that you’ve been assigned as a winner. All replacement winners are selected from the drawn "reserve" at random.

  2. TodayTix takes no responsibility for undelivered ‘winner’ emails or push notifications.

  3. Please note that your entry into a lottery for the chance to purchase 1 or 2 discounted price tickets for a particular performance will not be rolled-over to any lottery for another performance.

  4. Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded.

  5. Employees and their immediate families of the Promoter, its agents or anyone professionally connected with the Promoter are not able to enter.
