The award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a London landmark – a firm fixture of summer in the city, providing a cultural hub in the beautiful surroundings of a Royal Park.
Established in 1932, the award-winning Regent's Park Open Air Theatre is one of the largest theatres in London. Celebrated for its bold and dynamic productions (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Seagull, Porgy and Bess, The Crucible, Henry V), over 140,000 people visit the theatre each year during the 18-week season. The theatre receives no public subsidy, with ticket sales accounting for over 90% of income.
“Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has been transformed into one of the capital’s most exciting spaces.”
The theatre’s ambition of reaching new audiences beyond the Park has seen their productions of Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Flies and To Kill a Mockingbird tour the UK and Ireland, the latter subsequently transferring to the Barbican for a month-long residency, and their co-production with Chichester Festival Theatre of Michael Morpurgo’s Running Wild toured the UK in 2017. Jesus Christ Superstar opens at the Lyric Opera of Chicago in April 2018.
