Regents Park Open Air Theatre extends 2021 season

Regent's Park Open Air Theatre have announced their 2020 season.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre confirms their 2021 season, including extended runs of Romeo and Juliet (17 June – 24 July), directed by Kimberley Sykes, and Carousel (31 July –  25 September), directed by Timothy Sheader. Dragons and Mythical Beasts, for ages 3+, will now open on Friday 13 August with additional performances added during the run. The same covid-secure procedures will be in place for as long as necessary including an initial 50% reduction to seating capacity.

 In addition, the theatre will present a co-production with Unicorn Theatre of Anansi the Spider for ages 3-7. Brought vividly to life by Unicorn’s Artistic Director, Justin Audibert, the production – which consists of three classic West African and Caribbean tales about the spider hoaxster – enjoyed a critically acclaimed run at the Unicorn in 2019, and was ‘re-spun’ as part of their digital offering during the pandemic. The show will play daytime performances on the theatre’s lawn, 7 – 24 July. Tickets go on sale on 23 April (priority booking for members from 19 April).

 A series of MOREoutdoor events will include comedy from Aisling Bea, Jimmy Carr, and Luisa Omielan and, following last summer’s sell-out gigs, Canned Laughter present another all-star comedy fundraiser in support of The Trussell Trust featuring Lolly Adefope, Rosie Jones, Rose Matafeo and Suzi Ruffell – with more acts to be announced. Also confirmed is a 20th anniversary screening of Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! by The Luna Cinema alongside The Shining.

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.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

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.
