Day for Room on the Broom

I couldn't get tickets for the weekend show so I decided to get the Friday tickets. Took half day leave, daddy says he is not working today so suggest that let Little DinoEgg stay at home instead of going to school. Rushed home to change into more comfy clothes n out of the house we go to watch the play~

I managed to find a photo of the characters from the net.

The casts were brilliant~

The performance started even without us realising :) coz the casts came out n mingled with the audience, they started with them playing hide and seek amongst the audience and of course the kids were very excited n ratted out the place where 1 of them is hiding hahaa~ They chatted, joked, teased with the audience and within minutes the play has started with them seeing a witch flying in the sky!

Here is a brief synopsis of the story written by Julia Donaldson

The witch and her cat fly happily over forests, rivers and mountains on their broomstick until a stormy wind blows away the witch’s hat, bow and wand. They are retrieved by a dog, a bird and a frog, and each animal asks for a ride on the broom. They climb on, one after the next, until the broom is so heavy that it snaps in two! What will happen next as they tumble into a bog and meet a greedy dragon?

The part puppetry part actors/actresses performance is something new to Little DinoEgg coz the plays we watched previously were either all performed by humans or very little puppets. Regardless, he enjoyed it very much, with a little "flaw"... he keep thinking this witch is the witch from Meg, Mog and Owl show hahaa~ Another "flaw" is there were too much talking for a 3yr old to absorb, he drifted away a few times but when there were excitement on the stage his attention immediately goes back to the stage.

I love the performance, especially the part where they sat on the broom n "fly" around. Their movement n expressions gives you a feeling that you are on the broom with them flying so so high up with the wind in your face n hair. Thumbs up!
