Tom Hiddleston returns to the stage this summer for the Sir Kenneth Branagh-directed production of Hamlet.

The production will only run for three weeks at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art’s (RADA) Jerwood Vanbrugh theatre, a venue that only seats 160 occupants.

To get the very exclusive tickets — which cost £15 for under-25s, £45 and £95 for the rest — you must register to a ballot, which closes Sunday 6 August at 6 pm. All money raised will go towards RADA.

"Hamlet presents almost limitless possibilities for interpretation,” Hiddleston, a former RADA student, said.

“Kenneth Branagh and I have long talked about working on the play together and now felt like the right time, at the right place.”

He continued, “the performing arts exist to bring people together, not to break or keep them apart. I hope the funds raised by the production will help RADA continue to provide an equal opportunity to train actors, stage managers and technical theatre artists, from different backgrounds, to a standard of excellence and professionalism. We need to keep the doors open for everyone.”

Branagh’s Hamlet runs between from 1-23 September, successful ticket applicants only able to purchase two tickets.
