Room on the Broom at the Arts Centre Melbourne

*Updated Wednesday 7th of December 2016 with giveway*

Best-selling children’s author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler’s magical tale Room on the Broom will fly into Arts Centre Melbourne’s Playhouse from the 4th to the 15th January 2017 next year! How exciting!


UK theatre company Tall Stories and Australia’s CDP Theatre Producers – the team behind the stage adaptations The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child - will bring to life the award-winning book in a play filled with songs, puppets, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups. 

The Witch and her cat are travelling on their broomstick in search of a fierce dragon when they meet some new friends along their journey - a friendly dog, a rather talkative bird and a charming frog.But this broomstick’s not meant for five and - CRACK - it snaps in two... just as the hungry dragon appears! Who will save the poor witch and will there ever be room on the broom for everyone?
