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. Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
This fearless, funny, and fabulous brand new musical sensation comes with music by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and writer Tom MacRae.
The accolade comes just days after the musical won the Culture Award at the Attitude Magazine Awards at London’s Roundhouse on Thursday night (Oct 12).
