The stars come out for On The Town
By Open Air Theatre
It was great to welcome so many family and friends at our Guest Night for On The Town. Amongst the guests were several of the stars from Strictly Come Dancing here to support Danny Mac, including Ore Oduba, Louise Redknapp, Daisy Lowe, Will Young, Rob Rinder, and professional dancers Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Oti Mabuse, Janette Manrara, Aljaž Skorjanec and Neil and Katya Jones.
We are also delighted to release our beautiful production photos by Johan Persson and Jane Hobson, which can be viewed on the production page.
In casting news, we are sad to report that Fred Haig, who played Chip, has withdrawn from the show following an injury to his foot, which has now been confirmed as a fracture. We wish Fred a speedy recovery and can confirm that, with the support of Danny Mac (Gabey), Samuel Edwards (Ozzie), Lizzy Connolly (Hildy) and all the Company, Fred’s understudy, Jacob Maynard has now stepped out of the Ensemble permanently to play the role of Chip for the remainder of the run.
On The Town runs at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre until 1 July 2017.
