Thank you to our fantastic audiences and critics for continuing to talk about Jamie and keeping us in the West End alongside some of the world’s favourite musicals.”

Layton Williams who plays Jamie New said: “I’m so thrilled to be strutting into 2020 as Jamie New. I love seeing the joy it brings to audience members after every show. It fills my heart and hopefully theirs too!”

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 and into the spotlight.
