The movie will be available to stream from 17th September, and a new trailer gives more glimpses of what’s in store.

The musical follows schoolboy Jamie New who reveals to his career’s councilor and classmates that his dream job is being a drag queen.

The British musical has made the journey from stage to screen in record time, it’s only a few years since it had its first performance in Sheffield. Since then the musical has been a sensation in the West End, had a tour of the United Kingdom, made waves in South Korea and found fans around the world. Sadly an Australian production had to be cancelled due to Covid-19.

The film version features newcomer Max Harwood in the title role. Oscar-nominated star Richard E. Grant plays Hugo, a former drag queen and mentor. While Happy Valley‘s Sarah Lancashire stars as Jamie’s mother and Catastrophe‘s Sharon Horgan appears as teacher Miss Hedge.

The soundtrack will also include a new song This Was Me, which is performed by Holly Johnson from Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

Take a look at the new trailer and mark off 17th September in your diary.
