The popular 'Jukebox' musical & Juliet is to invite audiences to join in and sing along for a special performance as a one-off special sing along show will take place at the Shaftesbury Theatre on June 6th.
During the special performance of the show, large screens situated around the auditorium in the theatre will display the lyrics to the songs. & Juliet features a catalogue of well known hits such as “Love Me Like You Do,” "Roar" and “Confident”.
Speaking about the special performance, director Luke Sheppard commented, “We wanted to create a special occasion where everyone is welcome to join in and have as much fun singing our songs as the actors do every night - when normally we ask the audience to leave the performing to them! A key message of the show is celebrating inclusivity through the magic of theatre, and our hope is that this event continues to open up this show to new audiences as well as those who want to experience the show in a unique way.”
Miriam-Teak Lee leads the cast of & Juliet in the title role. She is joined by Keala Settle as the Nurse, Julius D'Silva as Lance, Oliver Tompsett as William Shakespeare, Cassidy Janson as Anne Hathaway, Tim Mahendran as Francois and Alex Thomas-Smith as May, and Tom Francis as Romeo.
The remainder of the & Juliet ensemble features Suki Wong, Ebony Clarke, Christian Maynard, Ivan De Freitas, Alex Tranter, Rhian Duncan, Aaron Shales, Bessy Ewa, Collette Guitart, Rachel Moran, Cassandra Lee, Carl Man, Nathan Louis-Fernand, Zara Macintosh, Owen Saward, Benjamin Terry, Sophie Usher, and Rhys Wilkinson.
The special singalong performance of & Juliet will be held at the Shaftesbury Theatre on June 6th 2022.
