Best New Musical Best Actor in a Musical - John McCrea Best Supporting Actress in a Musical - Lucie Shorthouse Inspired by a true story, Everybody's Talking About Jamie is the new 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. 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 ?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.
