Room on the Broom


Iggety ziggety zaggety zoom! The perfect summer treat for you!

Thursday 21 July – Sunday 4 September 2022 

Based on the best-selling book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Tall Stories’ Olivier award-nominated Room on the Broom will be bringing some magic to the West End this summer to enchant everyone aged 3 and upwards.

Jump on board the broom with the witch and her cat in this fun-filled magical musical adaptation running at Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue from 21 July to 4 September.

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 this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK – it snaps in two… just as the hungry dragon appears!

Will there ever be room on the broom for everyone?

With enchanting puppetry, sing-a-long songs, hilarious fun and magical spells, Room on the Broom is an ideal summer family treat and a magical introduction to theatre for young children. The new cast includes Jessica Manu as The Witch, Hannah Miller will play Cat, Peter Steele returns to ‘Room on the Broom’ to play Dog and Frog, and Jake Waring  will play Bird and Dragon. The company is completed by Jayant Singh.

Director and Tall Stories co-founder Olivia Jacobs said: “I’m thrilled that Tall Stories is returning to the Lyric Theatre with ‘Room on the Broom’ this summer. After a difficult time for touring theatre companies, this story of pulling together in times of adversity feels very apt. We’re looking forward to bringing a sprinkling of magic to families this summer with this funny, fast-paced, high-energy show. Come and join us – there’s plenty of Room on the Broom!”
