Union J star Jaymi Hensley will don the dream coat in his first ever major musical coming to Oxford this July.
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘superb’ sparkling family musical embarks on a national tour with a new Joseph. Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours, ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ has been seen by an estimated 26 million people, and counting, as it continues to enthral audiences around the world.
Having risen to fame on The X Factor, Union J star Jaymi Hensley went on to have a top ten album and a major UK tour with the band. He later appeared on a number of hit TV shows, including Celebrity Masterchef, before landing the part of Joseph.
Jaymi said: “I cannot describe how excited and honoured I am to be stepping into the prestigious coloured coat! When I think of iconic roles in musical theatre Joseph was always one that I dreamt of playing growing up! And to finally say that I am going to play it is a “dream” come true! I cannot wait to meet all of the loyal Joseph Fans and bring you my take of this amazing dream role.”
Full of life and colour, the magical musical features unforgettable and timeless songs including Go, Go, Go Joseph, Jacob and Sons, Close Every Door To Me and the iconic Any Dream Will Do.
The play will be performing from 16 – 20 July. Tickets can be purchased from the New Theatre box office on George Street, by ringing 0844 871 3020 or by visiting: www.atgtickets.com/oxford
