With the help of a daft dog, a beautiful bird and a friendly frog, her belongings are retrieved. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK! – it 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?

With music, song and puppetry, Room On The Broom is the perfect introduction to theatre for children aged three to eight and their families.
