Room On The BroomRoom on the Broom is a spellbinding adventure from the creators of The Gruffalo!. Adapted for the stage from the best-selling book written by Children's Laureate Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, this Tall Stories production of Room on the Broom at the Lyric Theatre tells the story of a witch whose hat, bow and wand are blown away while she's flying along with her cat on her broomstick. Enlisting the help of a daft dog, a beautiful bird and a friendly frog, the witch goes in search of her belongings. But with a hungry dragon looming, will there be room on the broomstick for the witch and her four companions? This is a magical, musical delight for children aged 3-8.

 

About Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue

The Lyric, Shaftesbury Avenue's oldest theatre was opened in 1888, just two years after the street itself was completed. An indistinct red brick building, it lacks the grandeur of the neighbouring Gielgud and Apollo, but has a charm and unassuming beauty that are all its own. More about Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue
