The magical stage version of Raymond Briggs’ much-loved children’s book returns to London
Featuring Howard Blake’s beautiful Walking In the Air, performed by a live orchestra, choreography by Robert North and directed by Bill Alexander, The Snowman has become one of London’s longest-running and much-loved Christmas treats.
With its wonderful mix of storytelling, spectacle and magic, this is the perfect Christmas experience for all the family.
The Snowman is booking until 2 January 2022 at the Peacock Theatre, London.
What is The Snowman about?
When a young boy’s snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve, the two set off on a night-time quest for adventure.
On their travels, they meet dancing penguins, reindeer and naturally, Father Christmas.
Watch spellbound as the Snowman flies through the night sky above you, before escaping the clutches of the evil Jack Frost to return home for Christmas morning.
