See The Snowman Live on Stage this Christmas #TheSnowman #Christmas #theatre

The Snowman has become an essential moment in all of our Christmas TV viewing schedules over the past 37 years, but did you know there is also a live version on stage every Christmas?  Originally created as a picture book by the illustrator Raymond Briggs in 1978, The Snowman was adapted for screen four years later and became an instant Christmas icon.


This festive favourite has also been gracing the London stage for the past 22 years, captivating young and old alike with that mesmerising score and delightful story of childhood innocence.  You'll leave the theatre with joy in your heart and full of Christmas spirit after a joyous excursion to the wintry wonderland of snow and wonder.



Follow the familiar story of a young boy who wakes to a snowy world and builds a snowman that magically comes to life on Christmas Eve.  His home and family are beautifully portrayed, and the magical scenes where the snowman comes to life and begins to play and explore are beautifully done.  Anyone who loves The Snowman on TV will LOVE this show!



With enchanting woodland animals, dancing penguins, a whole host of snowmen, a beautiful snow princess, and even Father Christmas himself, The Snowman is the perfect Christmas treat for all the family, and a wonderful way to kick off the festive season.


Staged by Birmingham Repertory Theatre at The Peacock in London and on tour around the UK and the Far East, the magical live show is based on the much-loved book and film.  The enchanting stage adaptation features wonderful costumes, magical sets and live music, including that unforgettable classic Walking in the Air.
