The producers of the popular musical have confirmed a special sing-a-long performance is set to take place in May.
Featuring the music of songwriter Max Martin, & Juliet have confirmed that a special sing-a-long performance of the West End show will take place for the evening performance on the 12th May. This performance will allow fans of the show and theatre goers to sing along as much as they want – with screens displaying the lyrics to every song.
The musical, which is now booking at the Shaftesbury Theatre until October, features many of the biggest pop songs from the last 30 years including Baby One More Time, Everybody (Backstreet’s Back), Love Me Like You Do, Confident, It’s My Life, Can’t Feel My Face and Roar.
Luke Sheppard, the director of the production, said: “During our first 100 shows at the Shaftesbury Theatre, we’ve been reminded again and again that audiences love the songs of & Juliet. 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.”
