Full casting has been announced for the 2020 tour of smash-hit musical Everybody's Talking About Jamie.


The show will stop off at the Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham (16 - 21 March), the Theatre Royal in Nottingham (20 - 25 April), the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre (23 - 27 June ) and Leicester Curve (29 June - 4 July). 

The cast includes the previously announced Layton Williams (Bad Education, Beautiful People, Billy Elliot The Musical), who is currently starring as Jamie in the West End, and much-loved EastEnders’ actor Shane Richie, who played Hugo/Loco Channelle in the London show earlier in the year.


They are joined by Shobna Gulati (Coronation Street, Dinnerladies, and Eveybody’s Talking About Jamie both in the West End and the upcoming film) and Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson.

Further casting includes Amy Ellen Richardson (Margaret New), Lara Denning (Miss Hedge), Sharan Phull (Pritti Pasha), Cameron Johnson (Sandra Bollock / Jamie’s Dad), John Paul McCue (Laika Virgin), Rhys Taylor (Tray Sophisticay), Richard Appiah-Sarpong (Cy), Simeon Beckett (Levi), Kazmin Borrer (Vicki), Ellis Brownhill (Mickey), Jodie Knight (Fatimah), Jessica Meegan (Bex), Talia Palamathanan (Becca), Adam Taylor (Sayid), Alex Hetherington (Swing), Emma Robotham-Hunt (Swing), Ellie Leah(Understudy) and Garry Lee (Understudy).


The show's producer, Nica Burns, said: “We are delighted that our first national tour of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is packed with West End stars. Three are hot off the Apollo stage, and are joined by a host of super-talented performers from other West End casts - from The Secret Diary Of Adrian Mole to Matilda The Musical and Scrooge. It’s fantastic to welcome George Sampson, who shot to fame as the youngest person to win Britain’s Got Talent at the tender age of 14. Together, they will give you a fun, funny and fabulous evening.
