About the show

The adaptation of Raymond Briggs' novel melds charming visual storytelling with a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack to create an enduring classic

In the depths of winter a young boy builds a snowman, only to find that on the stroke of midnight his creation has come to life. The two embark on a magical adventure across the star and snow-filled sky.

An aerial escapade ensues as the pair dart across the land and right across the sea through the shimmering aurora - encountering dancing penguins, the Ice Princess and Father Christmas himself before escaping the clutches of the dangerous Jack Frost.

The Snowman is set to Howard Blake’s beautifully emotive score, with choreography by Robert North, directed by Bill Alexander. Ruari Murchison’s entrancing design coupled with Tim Mitchell’s magnificent lighting combine to create dazzling visual spectacular guaranteed to captivate audiences young and old.

It was quite based on the children book snowman, where there weren’t any dialogues. The part where the snowman becomes alive is amazing... More

This is a really nice and cute show, though it's quite simple and has no lyrics or songs. Children will be happy I guess.
