Room On The Broom
Qut Gardens Theatre
Room on the Broom, based on the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler, is set to enchant young audiences at QUT Gardens Theatre this Easter school holiday.
Brought to the stage by the award-winning team behind The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child and and The 13, 26, 52, 78 & 91-Storey Treehouses, the Witch and her animal friends are flying back into Brisbane after sell-out tours in 2016 and 2017 and performed by the 2019 Australian/New Zealand cast.
Room on the Broom combines physical theatre, music and beautiful puppetry to bring this much loved story about friendship, sharing and working together to the stage for children aged 3 to 8 years and their adults.
The story goes that the witch and her cat are flying happily on their broomstick – until a stormy wind blows away the witch’s hat, bow and wand. A helpful dog, bird and frog find the witch’s lost things, and they all hop on the broom for a ride. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and the broom 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?
