Summer is here! Time to book for Regent's Park Open Air Theatre
If you enjoyed last year's productions of The Beggar's Opera and Crazy For You at London's award-winning Open Air Theatre, now's the time to book up for this summer's captioned performances of Ragtime and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Ragtime – Saturday 14 July, 2.15pm
Tragic, poignant and ultimately triumphant, Ragtime is a modern classic. Set at the turn of the 20th century, this powerful musical unites three families separated by race and destiny. The timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, and hope and despair, make this a theatre experience not to be missed.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Saturday 18 August, 2.15pm
Passion penetrates A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s enduring story of young love. As worlds real and unreal merge, romance struggles to survive and unlikely unions are forged.
Featuring the Open Air Theatre’s celebrated fusion of original music, movement and unique setting, this magical, comedic and seductive tale is set to be one of the theatrical highlights of the year.
