The Snowman will return to London’s Peacock Theatre this Winter in a 25th Anniversary production dedicated to the late Raymond Briggs.
Based on Raymond Briggs classic book and adapted for the stage by Birmingham Repertory Theatre, the magical stage production has become an annual festive treat for families – The Snowman tickets are often the first theatre experience for many young children. Running from Saturday 19 November, early bird tickets to The Snowman are the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit. Other Christmas shows playing in the West End in 2022 include Elf The Musical, Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol, Jack and the Beanstalk, A Christmas Carol, The Fir Tree, The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and It’s A Wonderful Life.
Sir Alistair Spalding CBE, Sadler’s Wells Artistic Director and Chief Executive, said: “We are so pleased that The Snowman returns to Peacock Theatre for its 25th anniversary, and this year the season is dedicated to the creator of The Snowman, Raymond Briggs CBE. He was a special artist, with a sharp and observant mind. He leaves behind an everlasting treasure in The Snowman.
“It is a pleasure to see families introducing their children to dance through this magical show. Audiences have always loved this show and the important messages it carries, and we are sure that they will keep returning in the years to come.”
Raymond Briggs CBE 1934-2022 died earlier this year.
In the story, a young boy’s snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve and they set off on a night-time quest for adventure, meeting Father Christmas, dancing penguins, reindeer and crowds of The Snowman’s friends. But can they escape evil Jack Frost and get back home for Christmas morning?
Featuring Howard Blake’s classic song Walking In The Air, this enchanting live show has thrilled audiences around the world with its enchanting costumes, stage flying, and snow effects!
The Snowman runs from 19 January 2022 until Saturday 31 December 2022 at the Peacock Theatre in London.
