The Regent's Park Open Air Theatre has announced a cast change for its current revival of On the Town due to a foot injury sustained by Fred Haig at the performance on Monday, 22 May. Mr. Haig's injury has now been confirmed as a fracture, which means that he has sadly had to withdraw from the production. His understudy Jacob Maynard will now play the role of Chip for the remainder of the run through to 1 July 2017. Mr. Maynard's previous credits include 'Guys and Dolls' (SavoyTheatre and UK Tour), as well as the UK Tours of 'Love Me Tender,' and 'Five Guys Named Moe'.
Regent's Park is already full of birdsong, but each summer the birds are given human competition when the Open Air Theatre stages its annual musical. Usually that comes in late July or August, but now it has been moved to open the season -- and summer couldn't, in this case, have come soon enough!
