This is one show that’ll sweep you off your feet!
The London-based theater troupe Tall Stories brings a children’s book favorite to life this month with its production of “Room on the Broom,” coming to the Kingsborough Performing Arts Center on May 21.
The musical, based on the popular children’s book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, features multiple puppets and original songs as it chronicles the travels of a friendly witch and her band of animal friends.
Tall Stories most recently thrilled audiences this year with its adaptation of “The Gruffalo,” by the same author and illustrator who created “Room on the Broom,” and this new production promises to equally delight.
“Tall Stories is one of the most artful and imaginative family theater companies in the world,” said Kingsborough Performing Arts Center Executive Director Anna Becker. “Their last show was so great that even I listened to the CD afterward!”
“Room on the Broom” performed by the Tall Stories of London at the Kingsborough Performing Arts Center at Kingsborough Community College [2001 Oriental Blvd. at Decatur Avenue in Manhattan Beach, (718) 368-5596], May 21 at 2 pm. Tickets $12. For info, visit www.kcckpac.org.
