FILM ARTICLE: EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE

To celebrate the nationwide live cinema broadcast of the Award-Winning West End Musical ‘EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE’  to over 500 cinemas nationwide across the UK & Ireland on 5th July STORGY have teamed up with AR:PR to explore the top ten stage and screen productions which have the power to transport you back to the glitz and glamour of high school with their iconic prom scenes. Below is a suggested list of films & productions which embody the magical night of the ‘PROM’, including the dazzling prom featured in the hit musical EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE.

EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE is based on the true story of Jamie Campbell, who, after announcing he wanted to attend his prom wearing a dress, was banned by the school. When prom night arrived, Jamie was turned away by teachers, however, thanks to an overwhelming show of support by his fellow students Jamie was allowed to enjoy his prom night alongside his friends – this heart-warming story led to the incredible theme of acceptance featured within the show.

Winner of 3 WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical, 3 UK Theatre Awards and nominated for 5 Olivier Awards, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been thrilling audiences and critics alike since it opened at the Sheffield Crucible in 2017, before transferring to London’s Apollo Theatre.

The hit musical EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE will be broadcast live from the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End to more than 500 cinemas across the UK and Ireland on Thursday 5 July at 7.20pm. Find you nearest cinema and book tickets at: JamieInCinemas.com
