Room on the Broom Musical to Entertain Families in Lewisburg

Feb 15, 2016 03:09PM, Published by Erica Shames, Categories: Today, Arts+Entertainment




A family-friendly musical, Room on the Broom, will be performed on Saturday, March 5 at 1 p.m. at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. The performance is recommended for pre-Kindergarten through third grade.

Room on the Broom is a 55-minute musical based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Room on the Broom is an ideal family treat for those who love the book and as an introduction to theatre for preschool and kindergarten children and their families. Expect enchanting puppetry, sing-a-long songs and hilarious fun for everyone aged three and up.

The witch and her cat are flying happily on their broomstick - until a stormy wind blows away the witch's hat, bow and wand. A helpful dog, bird and frog find the witch's lost things, and they all hop on the broom for a ride. But this broomstick's not meant for five and - CRACK - the broom 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?

The List says, ‘A truly theatrical feast that leaves both adults and children fully entertained’
