The Open Air Theatre is dedicated to making its work as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Whether working with local young people to develop and perform in our production of Running Wild in 2016; collaborating with the National Autistic Society to provide our first Autism-friendly performance in 2017; or even building an on-site rehearsal space to enable our artists to develop their work here in Regent’s Park, Trusts and Foundations help us to realise our ambitions.

We would love to hear from you if you are a trust or foundation interested in supporting our work. Please contact Beth Hitchcock to find out about current opportunities.

Dale Rooks, Co-Director of Running Wild on the Young Person’s Ensemble:

Not only have they grown in confidence and self-esteem but we too, as theatre professionals, have learnt so much from them and been reminded of the crucial role theatre plays in enriching and educating as well as entertaining.

Patron on experience of Austism-Friendly performance:

We loved the performance. My son is normally in his own world but he loves the theatre and gets involved when he can by saying hello to the actors. For my family, it gives us the very rare opportunity to feel normal. Thank you.
