The Snowman, Peacock Theatre
Twinkling with festive spirit, The Snowman has transported children into the wintery wonderland of a boy and his magical snowman for a record-breaking 20 consecutive years in London’s West End at The Peacock. With a magical mix of exquisite dancing and live music – including Walking in the Air – friendship is kindled as the two embark on a starry-skied adventure to the North Pole, where they meet dancing penguins, reindeer, Father Christmas, Ice Princess, and escape the clutches of Jack Frost.
Howard Blake said: “I’m thrilled that The Snowman is celebrating an amazing 20 years in London’s West End. There are very few shows that enjoy such a remarkably long life and its continuing success and appeal to new generations of audiences is a tribute to the artistic team that created the show, the dancers, the children, the musicians and Birmingham Repertory Theatre who first staged the production back in 1993. I look forward to many more years of Walking in the Air with audiences old and new.”
Based on the book by Raymond Briggs and the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates, The Snowman is a much-loved festive tradition of storytelling, spectacle and magic. The Birmingham Repertory Theatre production has music and lyrics by Howard Blake, choreography by Robert North, direction by Bill Alexander, design by Ruari Murchison and lighting by Tim Mitchell.
Suitable for all ages.
