This latest production from the theatre company brings to life Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s story of two scarecrows who want to get married.

Betty O’Barley and Harry O’Hay are excellent scarecrows (they scare a lot of crows).   Harry loves Betty, and Betty loves Harry – so they decide to get married and Harry sets off to search for their wedding day essentials including a dress of feathers, a bunch of flowers and a necklace made from shells.
However, when the farmer notices he is missing a scarecrow, he replaces Harry with the devilishly smooth but dangerous Reginald Rake.  Dashing, daring and ever so cool, can Reginald persuade Betty that he is the scarecrow for her? Will Harry make it back in the nick of time before Reginald ruins their special day?

Suitable for those aged three and above, this is a heartwarming tale of love is filled with wit, drama and of course wedding bells!
