“Sheer theatrical magic. Go see The Snowman and melt” The Times

Created by The Birmingham Repertory Theatre 21 years ago, The Snowman has been delighting young and old alike for 17 years at the Peacock Theatre with its wonderful mix of storytelling, spectacle and magic.

Based on Raymond Briggs' book The Snowman and featuring Howard Blake’s much-loved score, Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s production has become an essential part of London’s Christmas calendar” (Time Out), and has been seen by over half a million people since it first came to the Peacock Theatre in 1998.

The enchanting show tells the story of a young boy’s adventures when his snowman comes miraculously to life on Christmas Eve. Featuring a dazzling array of colourful characters including dancing penguins, magical reindeer, a beautiful snow princess, her wicked beau Jack Frost and of course, Father Christmas himself, The Snowman is a Christmas treat for all the family.

The Snowman first appeared as a beautifully illustrated picture book by Raymond Briggs in 1978. It has since inspired the classic Oscar Nominated, BAFTA Award winning animated film, first transmitted by Channel 4 on Christmas Eve, 1982.

The magical stage production features Howard Blake’s timeless musical score played by a live orchestra, and includes the signature song Walking in the Air' which reached number 3 in the UK charts when sung by choirboy Aled Jones in 1985. 

Suitable for all ages, The Snowman is the perfect introduction to dance for the very young.

‘One of those shows that gets me through the winter. Magical flight to a winter wonderland.’ The Daily Telegraph
