The Scarecrow’s Wedding
Based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo
Betty O’Barley and Harry O’Hay invite you to . . .
The best wedding ever, the best wedding yet,
The wedding that no one will ever forget.
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?
This truly heart-warming adaptation of Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler’s new bestselling book is bursting at the seams with Scamp Theatre’s inimitable style (Stick Man, Tiddler & Other Terrific Tales, Pirate Gran) and promises wit, drama, and wedding bells!
This epic love story is suitable for all aged 3+
