Jamie musical scoops UK Theatre Awards

Everybody's Talking About Jamie, based on a 2011 Firecracker documentary for BBC Three, has scooped two theatre awards.

The musical, about a teenage boy who wants to be a drag queen, won best musical production at the UK Theatre Awards, with its star John McCrea named best musical performer.

The UK Theatre Awards reward the best stage shows outside London.

Everybody's Talking About Jamie tells the story of 16-year-old Jamie - played by McCrea - who wants to follow his dream of becoming a drag performer. It was inspired by our doc Jamie: Drag Queen at 16.

The musical has songs by Dan Gillespie Sells, lead singer with pop band The Feeling, and a script and lyrics by writer Tom MacRae.

Its UK Theatre Awards success comes just days after it won the culture prize at Attitude magazine's awards.

The show began at Sheffield Crucible in February and transfers to the Apollo Theatre in London on 6 November.
