&Juliet is the highly anticipated new musical which is set to hit Manchester’s Opera House next month before opening in London West End’s Shaftesbury Theatre in November.
The cast are currently in rehearsals for the show and on Thursday (August 22) they were joined by a very special guest in their studio. Harry Styles, accompanied by producer and songwriter Max Martin (whose iconic songs are the soundtrack to the musical), paid a visit to the cast and caught a sneak peek of their rehearsals.
Harry also took the time to pose with the cast for a few photos…can you spot him below?

Directed by Luke Sheppard, &Juliet is a remix of the most famous love story of all time, Romeo & Juliet. We all know about the pair’s tragic ending, but what if things had turned out differently? This new musical aims to rewrite history as we know it by telling Juliet’s story of survival, finding her voice, and living life after Romeo.
The music is provided by the legendary Max Martin, whose phenomenal discography will almost certainly have played a huge role in your life growing up. Responsible for hit songs including ‘Baby One More Time’ (Britney Spears), ‘Since U Been Gone’ (Kelly Clarkson), ‘Roar’ (Katy Perry), ‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)’ (Backstreet Boys), ‘Love Me Like You Do’ (Ellie Goulding) and many, many more, the music in &Juliet will be nothing short of showstopping.
The cast is led by Miriam-Teak Lee as Juliet alongside Oliver Tompsett, David Bedella, Cassidy Janson, Arun Blair-Mangat, Melanie La Barrie, Jordan Luke Gage and Tim Mahendran. The ensemble includes Jocasta Almgill, Josh Baker, Alishia-Marie Blake, Ivan De Freitas, Rhian Duncan, Danielle Fiamanya, Kieran Lai, Nathan Lorainey-Dineen, Jaye Marshall, Grace Mouat, Antoine Murray-Straughan, Kerri Norville, Christopher Parkinson, Dillon Scott-Lewis, Kirstie Skivington and Alex Tranter.
