A new UK tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat begins later this month and heads to Edinburgh towards the end of March.

Jaymi Hensley, a member of Union J, 2013’s BBC ‘British Breakthrough Band’ of the year, will don the Technicolor Dreamcoat and lead the company in his first role in a major musical.

Hensley says

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.”

Joseph is one of the most well-known and popular musicals with iconic songs such as Go, Go, Go Joseph, Any Dream Will Do, Jacob and Sons and Close Every Door To Me.

Retelling the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven 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.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat is on at the Edinburgh Playhouse from Tuesday 19th – Sat 23rd March 2019. Tickets here.
