Room on the Broom: A Children's Adventure Story That Even Adults Will Love
"Room on the Broom" has been adapted for the stage from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's best selling children's book. It's wacky, wonky, and a lot of silly fun. There's a witch and puppets and a disco-dancing dragon, and that's only the beginning. This play proves how fun theatre can be for kids.
"Room on the Broom" is a children's adventure story centring on a witch and her cat. In a series of madcap misadventures, the witch and her cat are joined by a dog, a bird, a frog, and, as the title of the play suggests, there's just not enough room on the broom for everybody. Things really begin to get interesting when the witch's hat and wand blow away in a gust of wind. Now, the witch and her crew need to set about retrieving all her belongings. They meet a host of colourful characters along the way and even come face to face with a dragon. With a tidy running time of 55 minutes, "Room on the Broom" is perfect for all ages.
The new production of "Room on the Broom" is playing in London's West End at the Lyric Theatre. The Lyric Theatre is the oldest running theatre on Shaftsbury Avenue. "Room on the Broom" had a sell out run in 2012 and is back by popular demand. The play is geared towards children 3 and up, so performance times are scheduled during the day.
