Musicals at the Open Air Theatre have become a highly anticipated moment within our calendar. From Gigi, to The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, to our 2016 sell-out production of Jesus Christ Superstar (recently nominated for Best Musical in the Evening Standard Theatre Awards), Artistic Director Timothy Sheader has created some of the theatre’s most celebrated productions, winning the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival for Hello, Dolly!, Into the Woods and Crazy for You.

We’ve delved into our archives to look back on Sheader’s musicals at the Open Air Theatre and added cast lists, photos, reviews, costume designs and production information to our digital archive For more information, visit openairtheatreheritage.com and search for Timothy Sheader.
