Synopsis


The witch and her cat are flying happily along on their broomstick when a stormy wind blows the witch's hat, bow and wand away into the night.


With the help of a daft dog, a beautiful bird and a friendly frog, her belongings are retrieved.


But this broomstick's not meant for five and - CRACK! - it 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?


Full of laughs, songs and scary fun for little ones and their grown-ups.
