101 Dalmatians Postponement 18

By Open Air Theatre

In light of government advice restricting non-essential contact with others, we are very disappointed to announce that our new musical, 101 Dalmatians will be postponed and will now open our 2021 season.

The musical has been in development for two years with full casting about to be announced ahead of rehearsals starting later this month. The decision to delay the 2020 season, though unavoidable given the current global crisis, has been an extremely difficult one and we are very mindful of all those associated with the production who now find themselves without work.

The Box Office will be in contact directly with all ticket holders for 101 Dalmatians, which will now run from 15 May to 20 June 2021. As we are receiving a high volume of phone calls and emails, we appreciate your patience as we contact everyone.

The 2020 season will now open with Romeo and Juliet (27 June – 25 July), followed by daytime performances of Dragons and Mythical Beasts (11 August – 6 September) and Carousel (31 July – 19 September). Evita continues at the Barbican, as planned (27 June – 22 August).

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre can obviously only operate during the summer months and, moreover, as a charity which receives no public subsidy, without ticket sales it has virtually no income. In these unprecedented times, should you wish to support the theatre further, you can make a one-off donation here.

New Cherry Trees in the Park

19th Nov 2019

Behind the branches and the blossom of the soon-to-be-planted cherry trees in The Regent’s Park is a story of mutual respect and friendship between Japan and the UK that first took root over 150 years ago.
