Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre announces live screen relays of Jesus Christ Superstar: The Concert

Theatre fans, you’re in for a treat today! Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre have announced that they will be relaying live performances of Jesus Christ Superstar: The Concert from 19 August.

This exciting news means 5,000 additional ticketholders will be able to enjoy the production via a giant screen on the venue’s lawn which will be divided into individual 1.2msq areas, ensuring social distancing.

Thanks to Blue-i Theatre Technology Ltd, five high definition cameras will relay the production to an LED screen delivering a vivid visual experience at both matinee and evening performances. Tickets for Superstar On-Screen will initially be available for performances from 19 – 30 August with all tickets priced at £20 and unreserved.

William Village, Executive Director, commented: “With the support of everyone involved, we are delighted to have found a way to enable an extended audience to experience live theatre this summer. Government guidance has required us to reduce the capacity of our auditorium by over two-thirds. For an unfunded theatre, this makes financing the ambitious, award-winning, large-scale musical reinventions for which we are known almost impossible. The live relay will help us attempt to make this revival economically viable, but innovative add-ons such as these are not a panacea for the industry. The future of theatre across the country and the livelihoods of our world-class creative talent and workforce remain in serious peril. Theatres urgently need to be allowed to open safely at full capacity as other industries have begun to, so that we can fully play our part in the nation’s economic and social recovery.”

You’ll also be pleased to know that selected MOREoutdoor Monday comedy events will also be available On-Screen at half the auditorium price, including Mischief Movie Night, Jimmy Carr, Canned Laughter and Russell Brand.

With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, it’s well worth snapping up tickets to this brilliant summer event. Visit openairtheatre.com to grab your tickets 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.

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.
