Raymond Briggs’ festive favourite The Snowman has whisked generations of children off to a wintery wonderland for a festive adventure year on year. Now Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s magical live stage show journeys to the Opera House Manchester from 7-10 November.
Based on the much-loved film and book, the enchanting stage adaptation features exquisite dancing, magic and live music, including the unforgettable classic Walking in the Air.
The family favourite follows the story of a young boy’s adventures when his snowman comes to life on Christmas Eve. Featuring a dazzling array of colourful characters including dancing penguins, a beautiful snow princess, her wicked beau Jack Frost and of course, Father Christmas himself, The Snowman is the perfect Christmas treat for the family and a wonderful introduction to dance for the very young.
Inspired by the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates, The Snowman has become a must-do Christmas activity, “guaranteed to melt the heart of even the most cynical Scrooge” (The Guardian). Featuring choreography by Robert North, direction by Bill Alexander, design by Ruari Murchison, lighting by Tim Mitchell and timeless music and lyrics by Howard Blake, the performance has been seen by millions.
The Snowman is visiting the Opera House as part of a UK and international Tour.
