Following rave reviews playing the title role in Birmingham Hippodrome’s spectacular pantomime, Peter Pan, Union J star Jaymi Hensley will return to the theatre later this year to lead the cast in a production of Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice's Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
The classic show comes to Birmingham Hippodrome from Tuesday 2 to Saturday 13 July, with tickets on sale now.
Jaymi, a member of 2013’s BBC ‘British Breakthrough Band’ of the year, will don the 'coat of many colours' and lead the company in his first role in a major musical. Having risen to fame on The X Factor, Union J went on to have a top-10 album and a major UK tour. Jaymi later appeared on a number of hit TV shows, including Celebrity Masterchef (BBC One).
Commenting on his upcoming role, Jaymi said; “I can't 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'm going to play it is a “dream” come true. I can't wait to meet all of the loyal Joseph fans and bring you my take of this amazing dream role.”
Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his 11 brothers and the coat of many colours, Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat features classic songs including Go, Go, Go Joseph, Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door. The show has been seen by an estimated 26 million people across the world.
Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat returns to Birmingham Hippodrome from Tuesday 2 to Saturday 13 July.
