Make your bookings for this delightful children's live play
Looking for something different to do with your children these school holidays? Then here is your answer - a live play full of fun and excitement.

Room on the Broome is a live play which is adapted from the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. It was published by Macmillan Children's books in 2003 and has been extremely popular since then.

Now CDP presents Tall Stories' production of Room on the Broom. This book has been brought out in movie form and games and won 'Best Longform' at the British Animation Awards.

It will be held from 23rd to 28th April 2019 at various times. Tickets will cost from $32 to $40 and you can book yours at this link. It will be held at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, 174 - 176 William Street, Perth.

Rounding off a busy awards season, the BAAs are a highlight of the animation calendar, celebrating the best British animated films from a variety of genres and styles.

"How the cat purred and how the witch grinned as they sat on their broomstick and flew through the windů"

The story goes that the witch and her cat are happily flying through the sky on a broomstick when the wind picks up the witch's hat. The hat blows away, then her bow, and then her wand!

As luck may have it, there are three helpful animals (a dog, bird and a frog) who find the missing items. All these animals want in return is a ride on the broom! However, is there room on the broom for so many friends? After that, disaster strikes when the broom cracks due to the weight of five on it. Will they now be able to save the witch from the hungry dragon or will this be the end of the witch?

This live show was a sell-out in its 2017 tour. It is the same team as the one who put out The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child. They now return with songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged three years and up - and their grown-ups.

Some of the comments about this live show include:

"cleverly done... a rollicking ride (Sydney Morning Herald)

"Charming, quality theatre" (Sun Herald)

"A truly theatrical feast that leaves both adults and children fully entertained. Five stars" (The List)

"55 minutes of high-energy treat" (Sunday Times)

Julia Donaldson is one of the UK's most popular children's authors. Her books, including The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom , have won many prizes and are bestsellers around the world. She is also the author of many songs, plays and books.

In 2011 Julia was appointed Children's Laureate and was given an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list for her services to literature. She now lives alternatively in both Scotland and West Sussex.

Axel Scheffler moved to the UK from Germany to study at the Bath College of Art. He is an illustrator of children's books and started this in the late 1980s. Since that time Axel has received worldwide acclaim and his books have been translated into more than seventy languages.

He has worked with several different authors illustrating fiction as well as picture books. Axel lives in London with his family.
