The 2024 summer season has been announced for the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.

The new season will open with TWELFTH NIGHT (OR WHAT YOU WILL) on 3 May 2024. Directed by Owen Horsley, Shakespeare's comedy of mistaken identities will be set against the heat of the Mediterranean sun.

During the daytime, families can enjoy a new musical version of Roald Dahl's picture book, THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE (17 May - 8 June 2024). The production heads to Regent's Park following a successful run over Christmas at Leeds Playhouse.

This will be followed by a stage adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic story, THE SECRET GARDEN from 15 June until 20 July 2024. This will be a new version by Holly Robinson and Anna Himali Howard, and directed by Howard.

The Regent's Park summer season will conclude with FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, a new production directed by Jordan Fein. This classic musical of joy, revolution and tradition features the glorious songs 'If I Were A Rich Man', 'Tradition' and 'Matchmaker'. The production will run from 27 July - 21 September 2024.

This announcement goes alongside the previously announced world premiere stage adaptation of Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman's BEAR SNORES ON (23 March - 21 April 2024).

Full creative teams and casting for all productions to be announced.
