Inspired by true events, Everybody's Talking About Jamie follows Jamie New, a teenager from Sheffield, who dreams of life on stage.
While his classmates plan their livelihoods after they leave school, Jamie contemplates revealing his secret career ambition to become a fierce and proud drag queen. His best friend Pritti and his loving mum shower him with endless support, while local drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle mentors him toward his debut stage performance. But Jamie also has to contend with an unsupportive father, an uninspired careers advisor, and some ignorant school kids who attempt to rain on his sensational parade.
In rousing and colourful musical numbers, Jamie and his community inspire one another to overcome prejudice, be more accepting, and to step out of the darkness into the spotlight. Presented by Kindred Drama and KYT, whose most recent productions at the Key include Jesus Christ Superstar, Chicago & Legally Blonde, Jamie will provide another fantastic showcase for the talents of KYT’s young people.
