News   London's Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park to Stage Sound of Music and To Kill a Mockingbird
 
London's Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park will launch its 2013 season with To Kill a Mockingbird, a stage version of Harper Lee's novel by Christopher Sergel, and, later, a new production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music.

The latter marks the first time a Rodgers and Hammerstein show has been presented at the theatre. It will be directed by the theatre's artistic director, Timothy Sheader, who is currently directing a radical take of Ragtime there and whose Regent's Park production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods is currently being restaged at Central Park's Delacorte Theater.

The Sound of Music will begin performances July 25, 2013, for a run through Sept. 7. Sheader will also direct To Kill a Mockingbird, beginning performances May 16 for a run through June 15.

A further two productions are still to be announced.
