The Snowman

The Snowman

Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to see The Snowman! Now in its 21st hit year, this enchanting stage show of Raymond Briggs' classic book tells the story of a boy and his magical snowman's wintery wonderland adventure. As a friendship is kindled, the two embark on a starry-skied adventure to the North Pole, where they meet dancing penguins, Ice Princess, Father Christmas and escape the clutches of Jack Frost.


With music and lyrics by Howard Blake, including Walking in the Air, choreography by Robert North and directed by Bill Alexander, The Snowman stage show 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, live 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.
