Scamp Theatre presents their latest production, a truly heart-warming adaptation of The Scarecrows’ Wedding, based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, playing in the West End at Leicester Square Theatre from Saturday 9th July to Sunday 4th September 2016.
Betty O’Barley and Harry O’Hay are excellent scarecrows. Harry loves Betty, and Betty loves Harry – so they decide to get married. 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?
Bursting at the seams with Scamp Theatre’s inimitable style, this epic love story promises wit, drama, and wedding bells!
