Bedknobs And Broomsticks - Ideal For The Stage?

12 April 2014 - 03:06 PM

I recently re watched this and it struck me how well this could transfer to the stage.  The score is strong, with some additional songs to flesh it out (like in mary poppins)

The animation segments would obviously not be animated but you could go more theatrical and use bright colours to differentiate between the two worlds as ww2 england is more muted in tones

Time would have to be spent working on the magic, especially on the final battle.  Also the flying for when she is on her broom. The bed could be done like chitty or the glass elevator and maybe projections too like the tornado in wizard of oz

If they could make it happen, the final battle could see miss price flying over the audience as the armour walks through the auditorium towards the nazis on stage

Plus theres moments like Portobello Road that would give an old fashioned show stopping dance number

It would be expensive but I think it could be quite a spectacular show
