Yesterday saw the opening show of a two day stint at Venue Cymru for the children’s best-selling book turned to stage show of Room On The Broom.
Tall Stories’ magical musical stage adaptation of Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler flies into town direct from a smashing WEST END season!
How the cat purred and how the witch grinned
As they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind.
The story tells of The witch and her cat flying happily along on their broomstick when a stormy wind blows the witch’s hat, bow and wand away into the night.
A helpful dog, bird and frog find the witch’s lost things and all hop on the broom for a ride. 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?
A special well done to the cast who entertain the audience throughout the approximate 55 minutes show (No interval). Amy Harris plays Witch, Alexandra Harman is the lovable Cat, David Garrud doubles up are the puppeteer of Dog and Frog and Luke McConnell is the Dragon and the puppeteer for Bird. Their awareness and ability to interact with the audience throughout the show keeps the younger children engaged which makes the show more enjoyable for the parents.
Songs, laughs and scary fun for children with a age guidance of between 3 and 7 bring this show to life and even the grownups can join in. I took along my eldest daughter who is six and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience and having read the book said how much it was like it.
