Shakespeare's 'The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark', is to play at RADA this September directed by Kenneth Branagh with Tom Hiddleston as Hamlet.

Kenneth Branagh's Olivier Award-winning theatre company is joining forces with RADA for a co-production of Hamlet in aid of the RADA Attenborough Campaign to support the transformation of RADA's Chenies Street site in London, further developing the Academy as a world-leader in dramatic arts training.

Tickets for the show, likely to be in huge demand, are set to be sold via a ballot sytem which opened just an hour or two ago at 12 noon today, 1 August.

The ballot will remain open until 6pm on 6 August, so if you want to stand a chance of being successful in the ballot, you need to get your skates on and sign-up here right now, where you'll also find some more details about the working of the ballot process.

Ticket prices range from £45 to £95, with prices for under 25s fixed at just £15.

Hamlet will play in RADA's Jerwood Vanbrugh Theatre.
