The Snowman at the Peacock Theatre

The Snowman celebrates 20th West End year

First Published 5 October 2017, Last Updated 5 October 2017

Magical family show The Snowman will once again twinkle with festive spirit in the West End this Christmas, marking its record-breaking 20th consecutive year at The Peacock.

The enchanting show tells the story of a young boy’s adventures when his snowman comes miraculously to life on Christmas Eve. 

With a majestic mix of exquisite dancing and live music – including the beautiful Walking In The Air – friendship is kindled as the two embark on a starry-skied adventure to the North Pole, where they meet a dazzling array of colourful characters including dancing penguins, magical reindeer, Father Christmas, a beautiful Ice Princess, and escape the clutches of the wicked Jack Frost.

Based on the book by Raymond Briggs and the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates, The Snowman is a much-loved festive tradition of storytelling, spectacle and magic, offering a Christmas treat for all the family and a perfect introduction to dance for the very young.

Howard Blake said: “I’m thrilled that The Snowman is celebrating an amazing 20 years in London’s West End. There are very few shows that enjoy such a remarkably long life and its continuing success and appeal to new generations of audiences is a tribute to the artistic team that created the show, the dancers, the children, the musicians and Birmingham Repertory Theatre who first staged the production back in 1993.”

“I look forward to many more years of Walking In The Air with audiences old and new.”

Katy Arnander, Director of Artistic Programme at Sadler’s Wells, said: “Sadler’s Wells is extremely proud to have hosted The Snowman in London’s West End over the past 20 years. The show never fails to delight audiences and is a great introduction to young children to the world of dance and theatre.”

The Birmingham Repertory Theatre production has music and lyrics by Howard Blake, choreography by Robert North, direction by Bill Alexander, design by Ruari Murchison and lighting by Tim Mitchell.

The Snowman plays at The Peacock from Thursday 23 November – Sunday 31 December 2017.
