Now a major fixture in the Christmas calendar, Raymond Briggs’ seasonal favourite, The Snowman returns to delight children of all ages at the Peacock Theatre, London and we have The Snowman Theatre Breaks from 28 November 2012 to 02 January 2013.
When a young boy’s snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve, the two of them set off on a night-time quest for adventure. On their travels, they meet dancing penguins, reindeer and, of course, Father Christmas.
Is it magic, is it trickery or can the Snowman really fly? You tell your children what you like, but they’ll belive he can, as he escapes the clutches of the evil Jack Frost to return home for Christmas morning.
This production is suitable for all children aged two and upwards. Featuring Howard Blake’s beautiful Walking in the Air, performed by a live orchestra and is a truly captivating mix of dance, stagecraft and music completing a magical Christmas fairy-tale Theatre Break.
IMPORTANT – Please note that Strobe Lighting is used.
