First look: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Summer is officially here. How do we know? The Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre season of shows is well underway.

Next up is the classic Shakespearean comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and we’ve got some exciting production photos to share with you!

Consisting of four interlinked plots and set in a mythical forest in Fairyland, Theseus, the Duke of Athens is preparing to marry Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. Throw in some underprepared actors getting ready to perform at the aforementioned wedding, as well as some lost lovers in the woods, and you’ve got yourself a classic Shakespearean comedy!

One of Shakespeare’s most loved and performed pieces, expect live music, playful adventure and physical invention, as the lovers’ world is transformed into a place of magic, laughter and healing, as we journey into the woods.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be on at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre from 28 June 2019 – 27 July 2019, and tickets are available now.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
