Kids show Room on the Broom returns to the West End this Summer
Room on the Broom, the Olivier Award-nominated stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s classic picture book will return to the West End this Summer. Tickets for Room on the Broom now on sale. The fun filled musical stage adaptation will run at the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue from 21 July 2022 until 4 September 2022. With enchanting puppetry, sing-a-long songs and hilarious fun, Room on the Broom is an ideal summer family treat and a magical introduction to theatre for young children. 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!” Toby Mitchell, Tall Stories’ artistic director and co-founder, said: “Tall Stories has produced 31 shows in our 25 years of existence – including five adaptations of much-loved books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, alongside many smaller scale shows. We first brought ‘Room on the Broom’ to the stage in 2008 and since then it’s toured nationally and beyond – including France, Germany, the US, Australia and the Far East. We were delighted that the show was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2013 – and this return to the Lyric Theatre marks the fourth West End run for the show. We’re particularly excited about bringing some magical spells, catchy songs and lots of laughter to family audiences this summer, following the uncertainty of the last couple of years – and we can’t wait to see all those smiling faces.” The new cast includes Jessica Manu (‘Where the Bugaboo Lives’, Little Angel Theatre; ‘Cinderella’, Lyric Hammersmith) who makes her West End debut as Witch. Hannah Miller (‘The Snail and the Whale’, West End/ Sydney Opera House/ UK Tour; ‘Roots’, Wilton’s Music Hall) will play Cat, Peter Steele (‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’, Southwark Playhouse) returns to play Dog and Frog having understudied the roles on the last UK tour, and Jake Waring (‘Brassed Off’ and ‘Cinderella’, Derby Theatre; ‘Madame Butterfly’, English National Opera/Blind Summit) will play Bird and Dragon. The company is completed by Jayant Singh (‘Swell’, Lion and Unicorn Theatre) as understudy. Acclaimed theatre company Tall Stories is renowned for its joyful, fun-filled productions for family audiences that have toured all over the world. The company’s adaptations of the best-selling picture books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler have included productions of The Gruffalo, The Smeds and The Smoos, The Snail and the Whale and The Gruffalo’s Child.
