Gerardine Sacdalan, Sandra Marvin, and Lara Denning

The producers of the forthcoming U.K. tour of the Broadway and London hit & Juliet have announced initial casting to celebrate International Women's Day.

The touring company, which opens July 8 at the Manchester Opera House, will be led by Gerardine Sacdalan (Made in Dagenham in Concert ) as Juliet, Sandra Marvin (Sister Act The Musical, Emmerdale) as Angélique, and Lara Denning (Sunset Boulevard, Matilda) as Anne. Additional casting will be announced.

The tour will subsequently play Southampton, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff, Nottingham, Leeds, and more.

With a book by David West Read and a score by Max Martin (and Friends), the new musical flips the script on Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet and follows what would happen if Juliet didn’t end it all over Romeo. The score features Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time,” Katy Perry’s “Roar,” “Since U Been Gone,” “It’s My Life,” “I Want It That Way,” “Can’t Stop the Feeling!,” and more.

The musical also has choreography by Jennifer Weber, musical supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Bill Sherman, scenic design by Soutra Gilmour, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Howard Hudson, sound design by Gareth Owen, video and projection design by Andrzej Goulding, hair, wig, and makeup design by Suzy Bennett, and additional arrangements and orchestrations by Dominic Fallacaro. Casting is by Stuart Burt.

& Juliet is presented by Max Martin and Tim Headington and is produced by Max Martin, Tim Headington, Theresa Steele Page, Jenny Petersson, Martin Dodd, and Rebecca Quigley.
