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?

Following the company’s previous adaptations of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s book such as Stick Man and Tiddler & Other Terrific Tales, Scamp Theatre’s production will feature wit, drama and wedding bells as audiences are invited to join the celebrations.

Director Eva Sampson said: “I’m delighted that The Scarecrows’ Wedding will be heading out on tour again this year. It’s a great opportunity to bring the show to new audiences and share Harry and Betty’s epic love story!”

The production will be performed by Joanna Brown, Sam Heron and Mark Kane. It will also feature designs by James Button and lighting by Elanor Higgins.

The Scarecrow’s Wedding will be touring the UK from the 11th April until the 6th August. For more information and to book tickets visit:
