First Look at Running Wild 21
Apr

By Open Air Theatre

Oona and Tiger

We have already said that Running Wild is the largest-scale production we have ever mounted at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, but take a look for yourself; we have just released photos from the rehearsal room to give a flavour of the show we are creating.

With 6 adult actors, 3 children sharing the lead role, a Young People’s Ensemble of 55 (split into 2 alternating teams) plus 8 puppeteers animating life-size puppets of a tiger, a buffoonery of orang-utans, a crocodile and, not forgetting, Oona the elephant, this truly is a production not to miss.

Working with author Michael Morpurgo, we are delighted to open up the lead role so that it can be played by either a boy or girl. Performing at alternating performances, Joshua Fernandes and Tyler Osborne will play the role as Will, and Ava Potter (who some may remember in the role of Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird) will play the role as Lilly.
