Back Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre
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.
