Open Air Theatre announces MOREoutdoor season

Published 17 March 2017

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has announced MOREoutdoor, a season of one-off events during their 2017 season, including cabaret, comedy and film screenings.

On Sunday 4 June, Alan Titchmarsh will perform Up The Garden Path, a horticultural cabaret. Situated in the heart of Queen Mary’s Rose Garden in Regent’s Park, there can be no better place than the Open Air Theatre to celebrate Alan’s love of all things floral. He is joined by soprano Rebecca Bottone and Luton’s award-winning girls’ choir Cantores, in a specially devised cabaret of readings and song – funny and touching – inspired by gardens and gardeners from across the world. Pianist Richard Sisson offers green-fingered support with music by Tchaikovsky and Billy Mayerl. Who wants a grey life when you can enjoy fifty shades of green?

On Sunday 11 June, the internationally acclaimed and Grammy-nominated vocalist, Stacey Kent, returns to the UK for a very select number of 2017 dates. Featuring music from her latest album Tenderly, Stacey returns to the familiar ground of standards and jazz-classics, featuring tracks such as The Very Thought Of You, Tangerine, In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning and Embraceable You.

Sunday 30 July sees Russell Brand make his Open Air Theatre debut with his new show RE:BIRTH. In Russell’s words, “How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me? Or, worse, to date someone like me?”. 

After three sell-out years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and an acclaimed UK tour, singer, pianist and entertainer Joe Stilgoe brings his smash hit show Songs on Film outdoors for the first time ever on Sunday 20 August.

With virtuosic musicianship, breath-taking theatricality and wit, Songs On Film pays tribute to your favourite movies. Self-confessed film buff Joe raids his own collection and adds his own original and stylish orchestrations to some of the most memorable moments in cinematic history. A VIP package is available which includes a glass of champagne at a pre-show reception, and a signed copy of Joe’s album, Songs On Film – The Sequel.

Following last year’s sell out screenings, The Luna Cinema then returns to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre for three nights of classic cinema under the stars, including La La Land (Sunday 27 August), Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (Sunday 3 September) and The Graduate (Sunday 10 September). A VIP package is available which includes a glass of champagne at a pre-screening reception, and a fleece blanket.

The 2017 season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre also includes the musicals On The Town (19 May – 1 Jul) and Jesus Christ Superstar (11 Aug – 16 Sep), alongside new adaptations of Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities (7 Jul – 5 Aug) and, for family audiences, Oliver Twist created for everyone aged six and over (17 Jul – 5 Aug).

Priority booking for Open Air Theatre members opens 11am on Wednesday 22 March 2017, with public booking opening at 11am on Wednesday 29 March.

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.
