It was announced today that Noah Thomas will take over the West End lead of Everybody's Talking About Jamie after the show held open auditions.
Nica Burns, The Producer of the show announced: "Noah was the 211th and final performer we auditioned for Jamie. After he'd sung the opening number and read the first scene, I was tingling with excitement. We had found our Jamie. Noah is making his professional debut in one of the biggest and most demanding roles in musical theatre: it needs a really good actor who can also sing and dance to the highest level."
Noah said “(after my audition) I was asked back the next day, not expecting anything, and they asked me if I would like to play Jamie. I couldn’t believe it... This is so surreal, and I am ready for whatever this experience holds”
Thomas is currently studying at The Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and will take over from Layton Williams from 6 January 2020, who is leaving the West End to lead the UK touring production. The performer will join the recently announced new cast of Bianca Del Rio – who will take over the role of Hugo/Loco Chanelle and Preeya Kalidas, who will play Miss Hedge.
The show, which recently celebrated its second year in the West End, is inspired by a documentary about Jamie Campbell who wanted to be a drag queen at the age of 16.
