About

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.  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 (Stick Man, Tiddler & Other Terrific Tales, and Pirate Gran) this epic love story promises wit, drama, and wedding bells!
