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 4 – 15 January 2017. 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 three 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?

4 – 15 January
