Flights of fan­tasy

South Wales Evening Post - - FAMILY TIME -

IGGETY, ziggety, zaggety, zoom! And off they go – be­cause the witch and the cat from Ju­lia Don­ald­son and Axel Sch­ef­fler’s clas­sic chil­dren’s pic­ture book Room on the Broom are off on their ad­ven­tures again, tour­ing a host of the­atres in the UK.

And they’ve in­vited fans of the favourite book to join them as they set off on their mis­sion to de­feat the dragon in Tall Sto­ries’ mag­i­cal and mu­si­cal adap­ta­tion.

The ac­tion be­gins as the witch and her cat are trav­el­ling on their broom­stick when they pick up some hitch-hik­ers – a friendly dog, a beau­ti­ful green bird and a fran­tic frog.

But the broom­stick isn’t meant for five and with so much weight on it, crack, it snaps…just as the hun­gry dragon ap­pears!

There are songs, laugh­ter and fun for chil­dren from three up­wards (and their fam­i­lies of course) in the Olivier award­nom­i­nated show that’s toured, not just Bri­tain, but the world.

The broom­stick is be­ing put into gear again from Novem­ber 23 un­til May next year, so there will be plenty of time to hitch a ride and get on board.

For dates, tick­ets and more in­for­ma­tion, go to tall­sto­ries.org.uk

And, if you can’t wait un­til you see the show to en­joy Room on the Broom fun and games, go to the Tall Sto­ries’ web­site for a sneak pre­view and click on the ‘Play + Create’ sec­tion to down­load Room on the Broom ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing pic­tures to colour, a maze to nav­i­gate and pup­pets to cut out and create your own ad­ven­tures.

The Witch and her cat are ready to whisk you away on a mag­i­cal broom­stick ride of mu­sic, fun and laugh­ter
