ORANGE — The Olivier Award Nominated Room on the Broom flies into North America and directly to the Lutcher Theater from London’s West End bringing a witch, her cat, a dragon, a few friendly animals and much more! This Lutcher Incredible Kids Event is scheduled for Thursday, November 19, 2015 for two performances at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. $5 student tickets and $10 adult tickets are available by calling the Lutcher Theater Box Office at 409-886-5535.

The same company that brought us The Gruffalo and The Snail and the Whale, Tall Stories’ magical musical stage adaptation of the best-selling book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, takes audiences aboard a magnificent broom for an unforgettable adventure!

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.

Join a witch and her cat as they fly happily along on their broomstick – until 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?

Recommended for Grades Pre-K – 3rd and family audiences, this event is appropriate for both school field trips and the general public.
