Layton Williams & Shane Richie to lead National Tour of ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’

Layton Williams and Shane Richie will reprise their West End roles as Jamie New and Hugo / Loco Chanelle, respectively, in the first UK tour of the smash-hit musical, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

Directed by Matt Ryan from original direction by Jonathan Butterell, the tour will open at the Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield in February 2020 – where the show is set and first opened four years ago – before touring to a further 19-venues across the UK until August 2020.

Layton Williams said:

“I’ve loved my time in the West End but am beyond excited to be playing Jamie on tour! This will be my 6th tour and I can’t wait to come back to some of my favourite venues with this beautiful show. I hope you’ll welcome me back with open arms as we share this beautiful story and spread love across the U.K! See you’s soon…”

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.

With catchy songs by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and book and lyrics by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been wowing audiences and critics alike. Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
