The Snowman has flown into Nottingham’s Theatre Royal and can be seen there until Saturday, February 1.

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 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.”

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, first transmitted by Channel 4 on Christmas Eve 30 years ago.

The show is suitable for children aged four and upwards.
