Stage adaptation of Jake Humphrey’s High Performance podcast to open at Norwich Theatre

Norwich Theatre is to present a stage adaptation of Jake Humphrey’s High Performance podcast.

The venue’s co-production will open at Norwich Theatre Royal on Sunday, 5 February 2023.

High Performance will transform the well-known podcast, which has grown into a movement of people invested in improving their mindset and finding their own version of High Performance.

The show will be presented by the podcast presenters Jake Humphrey, one of Britain’s best-respected sports broadcasters, and psychologist professor Damian Hughes.

This dynamic and impactful theatre show will introduce some very special guests as Jake and Damian invite members of the High Performance community to share their journey, demonstrating that high happiness is within us all.

Speaking about the new show, Jake Humphrey said: “I am delighted that we are taking High Performance around the country! This is not a live version of a podcast, this is an entirely original theatre production based on the learnings and wisdom from more than 120 of the most high performing people on the planet. I want the audience to leave inspired, uplifted, entertained and ready to find their own version of High Performance.

“For our opening night to be in Norwich – my home city – where my journey began is the biggest thrill of all. Walking out on the stage of the Theatre Royal will be surreal for me, but I can’t wait for the fine people of the fine city of Norwich to be the first to see the show that we have created with the amazing team at the Theatre Royal.”
