UNION J star Jaymi Hensley dons the world's most famous Dreamcoat in his first ever major musical - coming to Windsor's Theatre Royal.

Bill Kenwright’s legendary touring production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sparkling biblical musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has been a regular attraction at Windsor for many years.

But fans will be particularly keen to see the new production which boasts smart, updated choreography and a new star.

Jaymi Hensley, a member of 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. Having risen to

fame on The X Factor, Union J went on to have a top ten album and a major UK tour and Jaymi later appeared on a number of hit TV shows, including Celebrity Masterchef (BBC One).

He 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, 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.

It began life as a small scale show designed to be performed by schools, before being expanded into the spectacular show that has been enjoyed an estimated 26 million people at big theatres across the world.
