Jamie New (John McCrea) 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.

John McCrea, Josie Walker, Tamsin Carroll, Lucie Shorthouse and Phil Nichol lead a twenty-four strong company and an eight-piece band that will ‘sweep you away on a tide of mischief, warmth and exuberance’ (Financial Times). With songs by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and a hilarious book and lyrics ‘with delightful punch’ (Whatsonstage) by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, fabulous, feel-good musical sensation has been thrilling audiences and critics alike.
