Shobna Gulati, from the original stage cast, will reprise her role of Ray, while the film also reunites the creative team of director Butterell, writer Tom MacRae, composer Dan Gillespie Sells and choreographer Kate Prince who all worked on the stage production.
The description reads, "Jamie New is 16 and doesn't quite fit in-instead of pursuing a "real" career he dreams of becoming a drag queen".
"Jamie's story is all about celebration of braveness and fact and the way a group can get behind somebody who's a bit completely different and assist them and love them..." But ultimately it's always worth being yourself. So we put that message out on a day when a lot of young people will be making some very big decisions.

"He's taking part in his first drag queen", stated MacRae. And then my friend said, No, you'll be great. "He stated, 'What's it they see in me that I don't?' I stated, 'Richard, clearly you have been all the time going to be a superb drag queen.' However I feel he was the final individual to understand how excellent he was". This is the same creative team that has worked for the past seven years on the stage production based in London and now have the opportunity for a greater audience to experience the universal story of community and kindness when it opens at AMC Theatres in 2021. "And we just want to give them a fantastic two hours away from everything".
"Even though it's a story about a 16-year-old boy from working class Sheffield who's queer and wants to be a drag queen", says Butterell, "everybody can see themselves in him".
The film, from New Regency and Film4 is slated to arrive in USA movie theatres February 26, 2021, via Disney's 20th Century Studios.
