A family-friendly musical, Room on the Broom, will be performed on Saturday, March 5, at 1 p.m. at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. The performance is recommended for children in pre-kindergarten through third grade.

Room on the Broom is a 55-minute musical based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. It features enchanting puppetry, sing-along songs and hilarious fun for all. The event is sponsored, in part, by Coldwell Banker Penn One Real Estate

Tickets for the performance are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors 62+, $5 for youth 18 and under, $5 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), $5 for Bucknell students (limit 2) and $5 for non-Bucknell college students (limit 2). Tickets can be purchased online at the Campus Box Office or by calling 570-577-1000.

Tickets are also available in person from several locations including the Weis Center lobby (weekdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and the CAP Center Box Office, located on the ground floor of the Elaine Langone Center (weekdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.).

The plot features a witch and her cat, which are flying happily on their broomstick until a stormy wind blows away the witch's hat, bow and wand. A helpful dog, bird and frog find the witch's lost things and they all hop on the broom for a ride. But this broomstick is not meant for five and the broom snaps in two. When a hungry dragon appears, who will save the poor witch? And will there ever be room on the broom for everyone?

For more information about this performance contact Lisa Leighton, marketing and outreach director, at 570-577-3727 or by email.
