The Snowman flies into Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from January 28-February 1 to enchant audiences of all ages.

The production celebrates 20 spellbinding years on the stage of the live version of Raymond Briggs’ iconic and much-loved children’s classic.

Sparkling with charm and wit, The Snowman tells the magical story of a young boy’s adventures when his snowman comes miraculously to life on Christmas Eve.

A glittering host of international snowmen and snow women are joined onstage by an array of colourful characters including dancing penguins, magical reindeer, a beautiful snow princess and her abominable beau Jack Frost and of course, Father Christmas himself.

With its joyful combination of classic storytelling, music and dance, The Snowman is an enchanting treat for all the family.

Stuart Rogers, producer of The Snowman and executive director of Birmingham Repertory Theatre says of the show: “The Snowman has been delighting audiences young and old for an amazing 20 years.

“There are very few shows that enjoy such a remarkably long life and its continuing success and appeal to new generations of audiences is a tribute to the genius of the artistic team that created the show.

“We look forward to many more years of Walking in the Air with audiences old and new.”

The Snowman first appeared as a beautifully illustrated picture book by Raymond Briggs in 1978. It subsequently inspired the classic Oscar-nominated, BAFTA award-winning animated film featuring Howard Blake’s wonderful score, first transmitted by Channel 4 on Christmas Eve 30 years ago.

The Snowman is directed by Bill Alexander and choreographed by Robert North with set and costume designs by Ruari Murchison and lighting by Tim Mitchell.

The show is suitable for children aged four and upwards. Tickets are £14-£29.50 plus concessions.
