TV medic and presenter Dr Ranj Singh makes his musical theatre debut when the new UK tour of hit musical & Juliet opens at the Manchester Opera House this summer (July 8-20).

His journey into music and dance started in 2018 when he swapped his scrubs for sequins as a Strictly Come Dancing contestant. Then his performance on ITV's All Star Musicals received high praise from the judges and led to him starring in his own West End show, Scrubs to Sparkles.

Now he's in his first musical, playing Lance, the bossy father of one of Juliet's former boy friends.

He said: "It’s a bit of a change from my usual work, but not many people will know how hard I've been working behind the scenes to make this happen and it's an absolute dream come true. I can't wait to have the time of my life this year, showing the UK what I'm made of alongside an exceptionally talented and diverse cast.”

Ranj joins the previously-announced Matt Cardle as Shakespeare, Gerardine Sacdalan as Juliet, Lara Denning as Anne, Sandra Marvin as Angelique, Jack Danson as Romeo, Kyle Cox as Francois and Jordan Broatch as May.

Juliet ditches her famous ending for a fresh beginning and a second chance at life and love as the show flips the script on the greatest love story ever told and asks: what would have happenee next, if Juliet hadn't ended it all over Romeo?

& Juliet has become a global success, performed on four continents since its world premiere at the Manchester Opera House in 2019. The story is told with a playlist of pop anthems, including Baby One More Time, Roar, Since U Been Gone, It’s My Life, I Want It That Way, and Can’t Stop the Feeling!, all from songwriter/producer Max Martin.

Other northern dates on the tour are: Blackpool Opera House (July 23-27); Liverpool Empire (October 28-November 2); Leeds Grand (November 18-30) and Bradford Alhambra (March 24-20, 2025).
