Dr Ranj Singh said “I am absolutely overjoyed to be making my musical theatre debut in & Juliet, a show I’ve been a fan of since it first opened. I know 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 work with the incredible Luke Sheppard and the entire creative team and have the time of my life this year, showing the UK what I’m made of alongside an exceptionally talented and diverse cast. Bring it on!

Dr Ranj Singh is one of the country’s most recognised and well-loved medics and TV presenters, with a career ranging from NHS doctor, to author, to musical theatre star.

His foray into music and dance started in 2018, when Dr Ranj swapped his scrubs for sequins as a BBC Strictly Come Dancing contestant, partnered with Janette Manrara. The dancing duo also took part in the subsequent Strictly Live Tour in 2019. Then at the start of 2021, Dr Ranj’s performance on ITV All Star Musicals roused the nation and received high praise from the judges, including Elaine Paige herself. This led to him starring in his own sold-out West End show Scrubs to Sparkles later that year, alongside a host of famous faces.

He is the co-creating presenter of BAFTA-award-winning CBeebies series, Get Well Soon. He is one of the resident doctors on BBC1’s hugely successful series Morning Live and was a regular presenter on ITV This Morning. He has fronted a range of TV shows, including ITV’s primetime series Save Money: Good Health, Save Money: Lose Weight and Dr Ranj: On Call; the W Channel’s Extreme Food Phobics; and was crowned winner of Season 2 of Cooking With The Stars.

Off air, he writes for numerous magazines and websites where he gives expert opinion and advice on physical and mental health matters. Dr Ranj is also the resident doctor for Attitude magazine and has published several books including two Sunday Times Best-Sellers, Save Money Lose Weight and How To Grow Up And Feel Amazing!.

There is life after Romeo!

Get whisked away on a fabulous journey as Juliet ditches her famous ending for a fresh beginning and a second chance at life and love—her way. Created by David West Read, the Emmy-winning writer from “Schitt’s Creek,” this hilarious new musical flips the script on the greatest love story ever told and asks, what would happen next if Juliet didn’t end it all over Romeo?

Juliet’s new story bursts to life through a playlist of pop anthems as iconic as her name, including Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time,” Katy Perry’s “Roar” and chart toppers “Since U Been Gone,” “It’s My Life,” “I Want It That Way,” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” — all from Max Martin, the genius songwriter/producer behind more #1 hits than any other artist this century, and his collaborators. Break free of the balcony scene and get into this romantic comedy that proves there’s life after Romeo. The only thing tragic would be missing it.
