This week, Jaymi Hensley and the cast of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat swapped the sand dunes of Egypt for the rolling hills of West Midland Safari Park as they got up close and personal with their exotic residents.
A regular sight in the dunes of biblical Egypt, camels are less of an occurrence for the cast of the hit musical when on tour across the UK. However, thanks to West Midland Safari Park, Jaymi and fellow cast members Anna Campkin, Amber Kennedy and Gemma Pipe got up close and personal with their resident camels who call the Bewdley-based park their home.
The classic family musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is currently running at Birmingham Hippodrome until Saturday 13 July.
Following rave reviews playing the title role in Birmingham Hippodrome’s spectacular pantomime, Peter Pan, Union J star, Jaymi Hensley returns to the theatre in the lead role of Joseph.
Jaymi Hensley, a member of 2013’s BBC ‘British Breakthrough Band’ of the year, rose 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).
