The press night for On the Town at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has been postponed due to “the incapacity of one of the lead performers”.

A preview performance on May 23 was cancelled for the same reason, with the theatre also citing poor weather during technical rehearsals.

The press night, due to take place on May 25, has been delayed until the following week, and will be split across May 30 and May 31.

Preview performances will go ahead as scheduled until then.

The production stars Danny Mac, Fred Haig and Samuel Edwards, alongside Maggie Steed, Lizzy Connolly, Siena Kelly and Miriam-Teak Lee.

It is directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie.
