Artistic Director Timothy Sheader and the team at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre are delighted to announce the programme for 2011. Opening the season on 19 May, and created by the team that produced The Crucible, Timothy Sheader directs William Golding’s gripping drama, Lord Of The Flies, adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams.

The final production of the season, playing 28 July to 10 September, is George and Ira Gershwins’ hit musical comedy, Crazy for You. Packed full of classic songs including “I Got Rhythm”, “Someone To Watch Over Me”, and “Embraceable You”, the creative team behind the multi-award winning production of Hello, Dolly! reunite including director Timothy Sheader and choreographer Stephen Mear.
