STONE the crows! Two of the stars of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat came face to face with a selection of Egyptian artefacts when they popped over to the Ashmolean Museum.
Jaymi Hensley, who plays Joseph, and Andrew Geater, who plays Pharaoh, visited the exhibition as the Oxford institution between performances of the show, which is on at the New Theatre Oxford until Saturday (JUL20).
As part of the visit they saw the mummy and tomb of Djed Djehuty Iuef Ankh, carved panels as well as other relics and statues.

Jaymi said: “Being in in Oxford is a real pleasure. It’s the last week of this part of the tour, so it’s really excited to finish off here. Audiences here are really electric, so being here has been a lovely way to say goodbye to this part of the tour.”
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.
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.
