About the show

There are some things that are so inextricably associated with Christmas that it just would not feel the same without them. The Raymond Briggs classic, The Snowman is exactly that – the perfect blend of goodwill, festive cheer and a little magic to firmly establish itself as an integral part of the British family Christmas.

Whether it is the original book, or the timeless film shown every year on Channel 4, The Snowman has been enjoyed by generations of children, year on year. This theatrical production at the Peacock Theatre in London’s West End was the perfect way to give families and young children the opportunity to experience that Christmas magic again in a new way.

With lyrics and music by Howard Blake, direction by Bill Alexander, choreography by Robert North, lighting by Tim Mitchell and design by Ruari Murchison, this new staging of The Snowman lit up the imaginations of kids of all ages. This production is recommended for kids that are ages 2 and up, however babes in arms will still be admitted. Children aged 2 and up will require a ticket for the performance.

The Snowman tells the tale of a young boy and his magical snowman who comes to life in the night. As their friendship is kindled, the two embark on an exciting adventure through the starry-skies to the North Pole, where they meet reindeer, dancing penguins, Father Christmas and even escape the clutches of Jack Frost.

The Snowman began performances on 23rd November 2016 at the Peacock Theatre in London’s West End and continued through to the beginning of January 2017, being one of the most popular children's Christmas shows of the year.
