Not Long To Go Now

The wait is almost over as the first perview show of 'The Sound of Music' at the Regents Park Open Air Theatre takes place this Thursday evening.

I recently emailed Faye to see if I could find out exactly how the 'preview' shows differ from those that follow but just the other day she tweeted that she was 'Busy, Busy, Busy, Busy, Busy' so I may have to wait a bit for a response.

The crew and cast are no doubt working hard with final rehearsals and fine tuning everything as they preparre for opening night.

I'm sure it's a very special and unique experience being able to perform in such a remarkable setting and it sounds like Faye is really looking forward to her summer in the park:

Finally @OpenAirTheatre its truly one of the most magical places in London. Working here this summer is just a blessing.

Here is a little article I found online which tells you a little bit more about the theatre itself:

The award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a London landmark – a firm fixture of summer in the city, providing a cultural hub in the beautiful surroundings of a Royal Park.

Its steeply raked auditorium is one of the largest in London with 1,240 seats, yet those who attend say it is one of the most intimate.

The Open Air Theatre is built upon a core of outstanding dramatic credentials as they aim to present bold and dynamic productions that stimulate the senses. Weather and climate add a thrilling contribution to their work, making the relationship between performer, text and audience a truly unique event at every performance.

As previews begin for Timothy Sheader’s production of To Kill a Mockingbird on Thursday 16 May, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre announce full casting for the 2013 season.

Laurence Olivier Award nominees Charlotte Wakefield (Maria Rainer) and Michael Xavier (Captain Von Trapp) will lead the cast of The Sound of Music alongside Kimberly Blake, Faye Brookes (Liesl) Helen Colby, Samuel Edwards, Tim Frances, Victoria Hinde, Helen Hobson (Mother Abbess), Christopher Hunt, Caroline Keiff (Elsa Schraeder), Michael Matus, Harry Morrison, Gemma Page, Laura Pick, Stuart Matthew Price, Anna Simmons, Chloe Taylor, Joshua Tonks (Rolf), and Helen Walsh.Directed by Rachel Kavanaugh, The Sound of Music will conclude the 2013 season, playing from 25 July to 7 September.
