The international smash hit returns

ROOM ON THE BROOM - Live on Stage is a must-see production these summer school holidays! 5 performances only - tickets are now on sale.

Following sell-out seasons across Australia, the team behind the critically acclaimed productions of The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child return with songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up - and their grown-ups!

CDP presents Tall Stories' production of ROOM ON THE BROOM, adapted from the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler, at Sydney Coliseum Theatre on the 7th and 8th January 2023.

How the cat purred and how the witch grinned,

As they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind…

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 is not meant for five and - CRACK - 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?

Come and enjoy a magical experience with the kids this summer! Tickets from $29.

Choose from 5 performances:

Saturday 7 January, 10 am

Saturday 7 January, 12 pm

Saturday 7 January, 3 pm

Sunday 8 January, 10 am

If only my "teenagers" were little again - haha, they loved this story and it would be very entertaining to see it live!
