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!
