EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE: TEEN EDITION

3 – 5 AUGUST 2023
THE HAYMARKET, BASINGSTOKE

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie was performed at The Haymarket, Basingstoke from 3rd to 5th August 2023, and was a musical very much close to the BATS Next Gen family, so definitely was one to be performed!

The storyline tells the story of Jamie New, who wants to be a drag queen when he leaves school.  He also decides he wants to wear a dress to his school prom.  Supported by his mum, Margaret; her best friend Ray and his own best friend, Pritti, Jamie takes those first steps to becoming his true self.
