Awards 26
Jan

By Open Air Theatre

We’re thrilled to have been awarded London Theatre of the Year in The Stage Awards 2017: “Regent’s Park has been on flying form, staging some of the most talked about work of the year”. Running Wild was described as “a universal hit”; Henry V, “bold” and “thumping” – “a testament to the shift in programming Timothy Sheader has brought about in the unfunded venue”; and Jesus Christ Superstar “its crowning glory…placing Regent’s Park firmly at the heart of the London producing scene”.

In other awards news, our younger audiences have nominated Jesus Christ Superstar for four Mousetrap Awards, the UK’s only youth-voted drama awards.

  • Musical that landed with a bang (Best New Musical)
  • Best Understudy for Joshua Dever
  • ‘Welcome to the Westend’ Best Newcomer in West End Debut for Anoushka Lucas
  • Best Actor for Tyrone Huntley

With our BREEZE membership scheme, 18-25 year olds can access £10 preview tickets for all of our 2017 main-house productions. Sign up today, and see Jesus Christ Superstar for yourself when it returns in August!
