About the Show
As mentioned earlier, this production is based on the hit children’s book of the same name by Julia Donaldson. The book has been hailed worldwide and has been translated into 21 languages, and has also won a number of literary awards including the 2002 Sheffield Book Award and the 2002 Scottish Children’s Book Award. The book was so successful that in 2012, it was made into a short 3D stop-motion animated film.
This short cinematic version was also lauded and was nominated in the category of ‘Best Animated Short Film’ at the 2014 Academy Awards. Going by the story’s performance and history, you can rest assured that the onstage adaptation will not disappoint. ‘Room on the Broom’ is directed by Olivia Jacobs with music and lyrics by Jon Fiber, Andy Shaw and Robin Price, and lighting by James Whiteside, all experts in their respective fields.
‘Room on the Broom’ tells the story of a kind witch who is happily riding on a broomstick with her cat. While riding, a strong gust of wind blows her hat off her head. On land, she finds the hat in the mouth of a dog, who in return for the hat asks for a ride on the broom. The three then set off over fields and forests, before another gust of wind blows the bow off her plait. This time, a bird approaches the witch with the bow in its beak, and again, requests a ride on the broom. The four continue the journey and this time the witch makes sure she doesn’t drop anything but lo and behold! In an attempt to prevent her bow from falling, her wand falls from her hand and drops to the ground below.
Fortunately, on the ground, they find a frog that has retrieved the wand, and you guessed it - the frog wants a ride on the broom as well. The broomstick, now getting crowded, can’t handle the weight of the additional passengers and snaps in two when the frog leaps on. The animals all tumble down to a bog, leaving the witch alone to fend for herself against a hungry dragon. How will the witch escape the clutches of the dragon? Well, see for yourself!
