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.
Featuring Howard Blake's beautiful Walking In the Air, performed by a live orchestra, choreographed by Robert North and directed by Bill Alexander, this is the perfect Christmas treat for all the family.
The stage show based on Raymond Briggs' The Snowman and the subsequent film has become a much-loved festive tradition at the Peacock Theatre. Ruari Murchison’s enchanting design combined with Tim Mitchell's spectacular lighting has been delighting children for 14 years. With its wonderful mix of storytelling, spectacle and magic, The Snowman is back for a record-breaking 15th year.
By arrangement with Snowman Enterprises Limited and Chester Music Limited. The film of The Snowman was directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates.
Latecomers will not be admitted until the interval. Children aged 2 years plus need their own ticket. Strobe Lighting is used.
