Good news for fans of The Sound of Music: the Open Air Theatre’s production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic has extended to 14 September. Let’s hope the weather stays kind for the rest of the run.

It was a huge hit first time round, so I’m pleased to announce that Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman’s terrifying production of Ghost Stories is coming back to the capital. The spooky show will play from 13 February at Leicester Square’s Arts Theatre, four years after it first appeared in London.

If, like me, you’re eagerly awaiting more details about Miss Saigon returning to the West End, I’ve got some news for you. The Olivier Award-winning show will play at the Prince Edward Theatre from 3 May next year. Tickets go on sale on 9 September – put it in your diaries!

Finally, I’ve news of London newest theatre, the Park Theatre’s second season. Tim Pigott-Smith will star in the world premiere of a new play by Larry Belling; and Sean Holmes brings his production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night back to the capital. There’ll be another world premiere (Sarah Rutherford’s Adult Supervision); a run by the ever-brilliant Reduced Shakespeare Company; and a festive pantomime.
