The big screen adaptation of one of our favourite musicals is set to hit the silver screen this September and we cannot wait. What is even better we hear you ask? It will be via Amazon Prime!

The film adaptation was originally set to be released in October 2020 but was postponed because of the Coronavirus pandemic.  Amazon aquired the rights during the pandemic and will launch the film on its platforms on 17 September 2021, it will be instanly available worldwide for streaming.

The Award-winning musical is based on the story of Jamie Campbell, as featured in the documentary Drag Queen at Sixteen. The documentary was adapted for the stage back in 2017, and follows a young boy, Jamie New (renamed for the show) who aspires to be a drag queen while tackling a turbulent time growing up in Sheffield.
