The Snowman

The Snowman

A perennial family favourite, The Snowman has transported a generation of children and their families into the wintery world of a boy and his magical snowman. As a friendship is kindled, the two embark on a starry-skied adventure to the North Pole, where they meet dancing penguins, reindeer, Father Christmas and escape the clutches of Jack Frost.


With music and lyrics by Howard Blake, including Walking in the Air performed by a live band, choreographed by Robert North and directed by Bill Alexander, the stage show based on the book by Raymond Briggs and the subsequent film has become a much-loved festive tradition. Ruari Murchison’s enchanting design combined with Tim Mitchell’s spectacular lighting delight young and old alike with a captivating mix of dance, music, storytelling, spectacle and magic.


By arrangement with Snowman Enterprise Limited (A Penguin Company) and Chester Music Limited. The film of The Snowman was directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates.
