Derek Bond’s Dragons and Mythical Beasts is coming to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre this summer.

Step into a magical world of myths and legends where you will come face-to-face with some of the most magnificent monsters and beasts ever to walk the planet. From the colossal Stone Troll and the not-so-sweet Tooth Fairy to an adorable Unicorn and a mysterious Japanese Baku, this engaging new show is not only entertaining but educational.

From the creators of the West End and international smash hit, Dinosaur World Live, this brand new interactive children’s show features incredible life-like puppetry and will arrive in London for its summer season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre from 11 August to 6 September, following visits to over 40 venues nationwide.

While the cast are yet to be announced, we are sure this magical spellbinding adventure is sure to be a hit with the entire family. Be sure to book your tickets before they vanish out of sight!

We caught a sneak peek at production images from La Cage Aux Folles [The Play] playing at Park Theatre.

Directed by Jez Bond, Artistic Director and Founder of Park Theatre, the play follows the story of nightclub owner Georges and his drag artiste partner Albin who create the most spectacular shows in St. Tropez. When George’s son Laurent announces his engagement to the daughter of a right-wing politician who is on a mission to bring down the town’s vibrant nightlife, that’s when the real performance begins!

This new translation of Jean Poiret’s classic will star Michael Matus, Paul Hunter, Sarah Lam, Syrus Lowe, Peter Straker, Mark Cameron, Arthur Hughes, Simon Hepworth, Louise Bangay, Georgina Ambrey and William Nelson.

Catch this heartfelt farce at the Park Theatre until 21 March!

The multi-award winning Edinburgh Fringe hit, Collapsible, extends its run at Bush Theatre.

Essie has lost her job and her girlfriend’s left… but she’s alright. Except lately, she feels more like a chair than a person. One of those folding chairs. Solid one minute and then…

Pop along to the Bush Theatre’s website to find out more details or to grab your tickets.

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.
