Exclusive: & Juliet will be hosting an official sing-along performance this summer, actively encouraging theatregoers to join in during the shows musical numbers, all penned by acclaimed songwriter Max Martin.

The Shaftesbury Theatre will be kitted out with screens for the occasion, displaying the lyrics to every song.

Director Luke Sheppard said: "During our hugely successful run 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."
