About The Snowman

The stage show based upon the book by Raymond Briggs and the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates. Music and Lyrics by Howard Blake

When a young boy’s snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve, the two set off on a night-time quest for adventure. They meet Father Christmas, dancing penguins, reindeer and crowds of The Snowman’s friends, but will they escape evil Jack Frost and get back home for Christmas morning?

Based on Raymond Brigg’s much-loved book and featuring Howard Blake's classic song Walking In The Air, this enchanting live show has thrilled audiences throughout the world since first appearing on stage over twenty years ago. Be a part of the magic.

“Sheer theatrical magic. Go see The Snowman and melt”
The Times

Design Ruari Murchison
Lighting Design Tim Mitchell
Chereography by Robert North
