Here’s your chance, as producers of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie put out open casting call to Sheffield residents
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a movie star, here’s your chance to make that dream a reality by showing up to the open casting call for new film Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
The film adaptation of the hit Sheffield musical will be filmed in Sheffield, by Sheffield based production company Warp Films, and casting agency Piece of Cake Casting say, ‘it is important for us to cast only local residents for this feature film.’
The open casting auditions will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on June 5, with auditions open to men and women over 18. No previous acting experience is required and each cast extra will be paid over £100 for filming days.
A spokesman for Piece of Cake said: “We are looking for a range of film extras to play a variety of characters from young to old, all shapes, sizes and ethnicities plus drag artistes and fashionistas!”
Meanwhile, the original stage show, which was inspired by the BBC3 documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, returns to the Sheffield stage in February 2020, kicking off its first UK tour after an incredibly successful and acclaimed stint on the West End.
Would be extras must register online in advance, must have the right to work in the UK and must have proof of ID.
