Mary is sent to live with her great aunt in the countryside. One day in the woods, she discovers a mysterious blue flower that only appears once every seven years, as well as an old broomstick. Before long Mary has discovered the Endor College of Magic, a secretive school for witches, which is presided over by Madam Mumblechook.
Award-winning director Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arriety, When Marnie Was There), adapts Mary Stewarts much-loved novel The Little Broomstick into this sublime blend of magic and fantasy, which will sweep audiences along with its charming, heartfelt adventure.
Many thanks to North Wicklow Educate Together’s Animé Club for selecting this season’s relaxed screening.
For our relaxed performances/screenings, we will reduce the sound and lighting levels. We will also make sure not to let the theatre get too dark so audience members can walk in and out if they need to. A quiet area will also be allocated, as well as providing sensory boxes at Box Office.
