No bookshelf is complete with the smattering of Julia Donaldson books - a bedtime favourite many Melbourne families.
Suffice to say that the magic of the classic tale of the Room on the Broom did not disappoint. Following the tale of friendship and the unknown, a friendly witch and her cat invite a number of animals to join them on their broomstick adventure – all with various results.
The amusing storyline features a dog, bird and frog puppet who add much hilarity to the enchanted tale. With laughs a plenty (for the kids and adults) the four actors and minimal scenery nail the interpretation with five gold stars, in my opinion.
The 55-minute show manages to get the balance of humour, crowd participation and animated vocals spot on.
With the Room on the Broom only in Melbourne for a short time, make it a must-see thing to do with the kids during the school holidays.
