So everybody just keeps talking about Jamie… but it keeps giving us reasons to. The Olivier Award-nominated show is still bringing joy to all its viewers thanks to its incredible songs, message and performances. And today, it’s been announced that a new cast member will be joining the celebration that is Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

Joining John McCrea, Josie Walker, and the rest of the cast is TV’s Shobna Gulati. Shobna will be taking on the role of Ray from Monday 7 May 2018. She is famed for playing Sunita Alahan in ITV’s Coronation Street and Anita in Dinnerladies. But she’s no stranger of the stage, either. Her theatre credits include: Daisy Pulls It Off (The Park) and Mamma Mia! (international tour).

About joining Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Shobna says: “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a wonderful show; it’s truly warm, infectious for the soul and incredibly uplifting. The entire cast and team are so gifted and such energetic storytellers who give us a universal tale for right now. The show is full of the rich diversity that makes my heart sing and what makes Britain great! This musical celebrates life! This incredible production and ensemble is one I am so proud and so pleased to become a part of.”

We can’t wait to see what Shobna brings to the musical about a 16-year-old boy from Sheffield who’s got a big secret and even bigger dreams.

After a knock-out run at the Sheffield Crucible in 2017, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie transferred to the West End. The heartwarming story – based on true events – of love and acceptance was nominated for five Olivier Awards. The show is directed by Jonathan Butterell, with catchy new songs from Dan Gillespie Sells, lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, and writer Tom MacRae.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
