Regent's Park Open Air Theatre postpones Romeo and Juliet until 2021

Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

REGENT’S Park Open Air Theatre have announced that, following the extension of London theatre closures and continued government restrictions, their production of Romeo and Juliet – which was to have started rehearsals in May – has been postponed to the corresponding dates in 2021.

This follows the theatre’s previous postponement of their new musical, 101 Dalmatians, which now opens the 2021 season.

Jimmy Carr’s Terribly Funny, and Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year LIVE have also been rescheduled for the equivalent Sundays in 2021.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a charity which operates without any public subsidy and so must generate the vast majority of its income from ticket sales. Although this decision has been unavoidable, the theatre’s thoughts are very much with all those who were due to work on the show this summer.

Romeo and Juliet will now run from June 26 to July 24, 2021, with Jimmy Carr’s Terribly Funny rescheduled for July 11 and Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year LIVE on July 18, 2021. The Box Office will contact all ticket holders.

The theatre still intends to re-open this year for Carousel (July 31 to September 19), alongside daytime performances of Dragons and Mythical Beasts (August 11 to September 6).
