How the cat purred and how the witch grinned
As they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind
The witch and her cat are flying happily along on their broomstick when a stormy wind blows the witch’s hat, bow and wand away into the night.
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?
Tall Stories' magical, musical production based on the best-selling picture book by Julia Donaldson MBE and Axel Scheffler flies across the UK on tour from July 2013. Make sure there’s Room on the Broom for you!
