Shows that aim to enchant children and adults visit Sheffield this month, as Tall Stories’ Room on the Broom and Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo bound into the city.

Room on the Broom has been adapted and produced for the stage by Julia Donaldson MBE and Axel Scheffler, the creators of The Gruffalo. It tells the spellbinding story of a witch and her cat as they struggle to retrieve their belongings after a blustering storm.

With their helpful animal friends, and the not-so helpful hungry dragon, joining them along the way, the story unfolds dramatically with charm and adventure. Originally a best-selling children’s book, Room on the Broom is filled with high-spirited fun for children of all ages to enjoy. The show is on the Lyceum stage from today until Saturday,

Dinosaur Zoo roars into town next week, bringing prehistoric creatures to the stage. With a host of Jurassic giants for the audience to interact with, this highly imaginative live show uses ingenious puppetry to bring dinosaurs to life.

Originally heralding from Australia, this extraordinary production excites audiences with a popular mix of humour, adventurous daring and informative learning.

The show introduces dinosaurs large and small, including the recently-discovered Australovenator – a dinosaur of similar size and scariness to the T-Rex.

On stage next Friday and Saturday (October 18 and 19), Dinosaur Zoo is an experience of epic proportions.
