It’s alive…somewhere that’s green!

Starring Busted's Matt Willis and American drag queen Vicky Vox, Little Shop of Horrors is playing at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre this August!

For the misfits who live on Skid Row, life is nothing more than a series of broken dreams and dead ends. But there may be hope on the horizon for Seymour, a lowly flower shop assistant, when he discovers a mysterious new plant with killer potential.
Could Seymour’s sudden fame and fortune possibly win the attention of kind, sweet, delicate Audrey – at last? Can he finally break free of Skid Row and be happy…whatever the consequences?

Based on the film by Roger Corman and Charles Griffith, Little Shop of Horrors features music by Alan Menken and a book and lyrics by Howard Ashman.

Good To Know


Every theatre performance is unique, but this is especially the case at the Open Air Theatre where both the stage and entire auditorium are uncovered.

Each visit can be distinctly different as the weather and light spontaneously interact with the play. Warm or cool, clear or overcast, the point at which dusk turns to night, being outdoors adds a thrilling contribution to our work and is an integral part of your experience here. Some of our audience's favourite memories have been of the sun breaking through the clouds during the show whilst some of the most electric performances happen in the wake of rainfall.

It's best to come prepared for all types of weather: bringing your own shade in the afternoon is particularly important as is a jumper for the end of evening performances. So sun hats, sun cream, sunglasses, raincoats and rain hats should all be considered. Although the vast majority of performances are completed each year, as the auditorium and stage are completely uncovered, we may have to stop and re-start the show.

On rare occasions, it will not be possible for us to complete the performance, but we will never cancel a performance before the advertised start time. This is because you would be amazed how often it can rain all day and then clear up just in time for the action to start and indeed, how localised bad weather can be. Also we really don't want to disappoint anyone - audiences or our actors (who are always keen to perform, if at all possible).

Please note that films and one-off live music and comedy shows are never cancelled because of the weather.

Tickets may only be exchanged or refunded in the case of a cancelled show. However, refunds are not given for cancellation or abandonment of a show as a result of the weather.

Exchanging tickets for weather-related cancellation: 

If a show is cancelled or abandoned because of the weather, you will be entitled to exchange your ticket for seats available with the nearest value to your original ticket (rounded-up) at any other show at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in our main theatre repertoire (excluding films and one-off live music and comedy shows which are never cancelled because of the weather), subject to availability. There is no time limit on exchanging tickets in this way.

    It was a splendid show with an excellent set depicting the New York sky line, superb action, singing and dancing and a very amusing plot well acted. When I ordered tickets there was a warning about exposure to any weather and it was a hot evening.
