A seasonal treat for kids – It’s Room On The Broom!

Room On The Broom returns to London’s glittering West End from November 2012, originally a popular children’s book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the writing team behind The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child.

Julia Donaldson is also the creator of children’s favourites A Squash and a Squeeze, Monkey Puzzle and Taby McTat. Axel Scheffler has illustrated several of Donaldson’s books as well as countless other kids’ classics across Europe and beyond. Together they create hilarious, endearing and unforgettable characters that youngsters find thrilling, inspirational and very, very funny.

Room On The Broom - The story

Meet the witch and her cat, the stars of the show, who are eventually joined by a dog, a bird and a frog in a series of unexpected adventures that take place when the witch’s hat, wand and bow are blown away by a howling gale. She’s determined to get them back. After all, what is a witch without her pointy hat? And so begins a wacky tale packed with giggles and excitement, perfect for children and full of wonderfully colourful characters. It even includes a dragon!

Will there be room on the broom for everyone? There’s only one way to find out…

Colourful and entertaining

Great show for young kids. Went with a 2.5 yr old and a 4 yr old. They were both enthralled for the whole show. At 50 mins it’s a good time

Room On a Broom Review

Thought it was a bit amateurish in parts and the campers were a bit silly in what they were doing Very noisy children who were far too young to take to a theatre

Totally disappointing

We were so looking forward to this show as my two children love the story. The play was really poor, the actors corpsed on stage and really messed up . The music was rubbish, the scenery un imaginative. The whole thing was very amateurish and totally not worth the money.

Good show, could have done with maybe a little more audience participation, seeing as it is for little ones.

Room on the broom

As you would expect from the name, perfect for kids.

Close to the book

One of my sons all time favourite. Well transposed. Few hints moments towards the adults for a quick chuckle.

Great !

Great seats Row B stalls. Actors worked so hard throughout.. great adaptation from the book..very cleverly done...We loved it

Room on the broom

Good show for families including children as young as 3. The script plays massively with the sub text but did include all the original text. The use of puppets and physical ensemble work were both strong.

Room On The Broom

cheaper tickets would be better as it was only 55mins and kids dont sit still for to long

Excellent show for kids

Great show that gets the kids involved and is the just about the right length for a 3 year old to sit through and not get too fidgety!

Grandchildren's birthday present

My grand-children thoroughly enjoyed this - very entertaining (ages 3 and 5)

Room on the Broom

Very enjoyable for my 3 grandchildren, aged between 8 and 5. I was worried it would be too young for the older ones, but they loved it.

Entertaining, well acted and not too long

Took 2 of my children aged 3 and 6 to see the show and they both loved it, especially being fans of the book. The show is about an hour long, which is just right for kids I feel. The cast are very interactive, playing hide and seek in the audience before the show started. Very personable people and the use of puppets for some of the animals was excellent. Despite misgivings beforehand I found myself focussing on the puppets and not the people operating them. Entertaining and full of laughs for children and adults, even I thoroughly enjoyed this outing. Very well done and high praises for a wonderful afternoon out for the children, bringing the story to life with songs, music and great acting!

For young children

Little ones will need to sit on adult's knee as seats not raked back

Wonderful adaptation

Excellent - clever, witty, wonderfully performed - adaptation of the book

Great shows for kiddies!! they loved it!! just need a high seat for the toddlers

performance great, but teather not! children paid as adults and finish seating in the parents laps because they can see!! its not fair
