About Tall Stories' Room on the Broom: The Olivier Award nominated Tall Stories’ Room on the Broom flies into North America direct from London’s West End bringing a witch, her cat, a dragon, a few friendly animals and much more! Tall Stories’ magical musical stage adaptation of the best-selling book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler creatively brings the story to life through puppetry, music and storytelling that will take audiences aboard a magnificent broom for an unforgettable adventure! Families Magazineshared, “Very catchy songs, brilliant puppets and a fantastically animated cast” and The List raved, “A truly theatrical feast that leaves both adults and children fully entertained.”
Tall Stories creative team includes director Oliva Jacobs, creative producer Toby Mitchell, designer Morgan Large, lighting designer James Whiteside, puppets by Yvonne Stone, scenic construction by KW Props, music and lyrics by Jon Fiber, Andy Shaw and Robin Price and music production byJon Fiber and Andy Shaw for Shock Productions.
Room on the Broom is an ideal family treat for those who love the book and as an introduction to theatre for preschool and kindergarten children and their families. Expect enchanting puppetry, sing-a-long songs and hilarious fun for everyone ages three and up.
Join a witch and her cat as they fly happily along on their broomstick – until a stormy wind blows the witch’s hat, bow and wand away into the night! With the help of a daft dog, a beautiful bird and a friendly frog, her belongings are retrieved. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK! – it snaps in two. When a hungry dragon appears, who will save the poor witch? And will there ever be room on the broom for everyone?
