Room on the Broom is a dramatisation of Julia Donaldson’s hit picture book, featuring songs, comedy and scary fun for children aged 3 and up It will be the first production at the Canberra Theatre since the March closure due to COVID-19.

To the annoyance of her cat, a kindly witch allows a dog, a bird and a frog who have helped her retrieve things she has lost to ride on her broomstick, making it top heavy.

The broom is destroyed by a fire-breathing dragon who threatens to eat the witch, but the creatures band together to impersonate a monster and save her. As a result she fashions a luxurious new broom with seats on which they can all ride comfortably.

Canberra Theatre Centre has worked closely with ACT Health to develop plans for COVID safe operations.

The season of Room on the Broom will include precautions such as physically distanced seating arrangements, electronic collection of contact tracing details for every ticket holder, hand sanitisation stations on entry, increased cleaning of public spaces and high-touch surfaces, modifications to air-conditioning systems and staff training in COVID safe procedures.
