Union J singer Jaymi Hensley dons the iconic Technicolour Dreamcoat in his first ever major musical role in Bill Kenwright’s production of the iconic Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber show.

 

Described as “amazing”, “superb”, “wonderful” and “brilliant”, the classic family favourite musical will run for 10 performances only.

 

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat comes to Storyhouse from Tuesday 16 April to Saturday 20 April 2019. Group discounts are available Tuesday to Thursday.

 

Jaymi Hensley, a member of 2013’s BBC British Breakthrough Band of the year, will lead the company. Having risen to fame on The X Factor, Union J went on to have a Top 10 album and a major UK tour. He has since appeared on a number of hit television shows, including BBC One’s Celebrity Masterchef.

 

Jaymi Hensley commented: “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.”

 

Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his 11 brothers and the coat of many colours, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the first of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals to be performed publicly. Seen by an estimated 26 million people and counting, Joseph continues to enthral audiences around the world.
