‘101 Dalmatians’ at Regents Park Open Air Theatre postponed to Summer 2022
101 Dalmatians at Regents Park Open Air Theatre has been postponed to Summer 2022. Originally scheduled to open last year, the highly anticipated musical stage adaptation has now been postponed a second time due to the 'practical' and 'financial' risks of staging the show in the ongoing pandemic. New dates for 101 Dalmatians in summer 2022 will be announce in due course. Ticket holders will be contacted by their point of sale to arrange full refunds. In a tweet from Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, they said: “We are unable to go ahead with our plans to present 101 Dalmatians as part of our 2021 season. Indications appear to be that such restrictions will almost certainly still be in place when rehearsals were due to begin in March… both practically and financially, it will be impossible for us to produce this ambitious brand new musical with complex puppetry and large ensemble cast.” The production was due to star Tony and Olivier nominated actress Kate Fleetwood (London Road, Absolute Hell, King Lear and Ugly Lies the Bone) as arch villainess Cruella De Vil.
