We’re delighted to be a Technology Partner – alongside the lovely Spektrix – for the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art's fundraising production of Hamlet this September, with RADA President Kenneth Branagh directing former student Tom Hiddleston in the title role.
(The production is in support of transforming RADA’s Chenies Street site in London into a larger theatre, and student accommodation.)
A co-production between RADA and Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company, Hamlet will play in RADA’s tiny 160-seat studio theatre for just three weeks. This limited run – not to mention KENNETH BRANAGH! and TOM HIDDLESTON! – made it clear there’d be a huge demand for tickets.
In order to make it as fair as possible for everyone wanting to see the production, tickets are being sold via a ballot system.
It’s free to enter, then successful entrants – who’ll be randomly selected after the ballot closes this Sunday – will be able to buy tickets online next week.
So, everyone who signs-up between now and 6pm on Sunday 6 August has exactly the same chance of getting tickets, no matter who they are. (Even theatre critics have to enter the ballot to be in with a chance of getting tickets, just like everyone else.)
Oh, and because this is RADA they’ve made sure younger audiences can afford to go too – under-25s can get tickets for just £15.
If you’ve yet to enter, you’ve got until 6pm Sunday 6 August. Good luck!
