Regent's Park Open Air Theatre has revealed casting for its upcoming world-premiere stage adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden, newly adapted by Holly Robinson and Anna Himali Howard. As previously announced, the production will begin performances June 15 ahead of a June 25 opening night, with the run continuing through July 20. Howard is directing.

The cast will include Theo Angel as Colin, Richard Clews as Ben Weatherstaff, George Fletcher as Dr. Craven, Amanda Hadingue as Mrs. Medlock, Molly Hewitt-Richards as Martha, Jack Humphrey as Archibald Craven, Avita Jay as Champa, Hannah Khalique-Brown as Mary Lennox, Patrick Osborne as Captain Lennox, Sharan Phull as Lata and The Robin, Archana Ramaswamy as Padma, and Brydie Service as Dickon.

The story follows 10-year-old Mary Lennox, sent from India to Yorkshire to live with her uncle after she's left orphaned. The sprawling countryside mansion she's now expected to call home seems full of secrets and strange noises, along with a garden as lost and neglected as she is. This new stage version of the novel was commission by Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.

The production will feature movement by Will Dickie, set design by Leslie Travers, costume design by Khadija Raza, lighting design by Jai Morjaria, and sound design by Tingying Dong. Also on the creative team are consultant historian and translator Dr. Priyanka Basu, puppetry consultant Laura Cubitt, dramaturg Gillian Greer, composers Ford Collier and Kate Griffin of Mishra Music, and intimacy director Ita O'Brien. Casting is by Polly Jerrold.

The outdoor theatre's upcoming season also includes Twelfth Night, a new musical version of Roald Dahl's The Enormous Crocodile, and Fiddler on the Roof.
