The Snowman at Sadlers Wells

27 November 2015, 16:04

Make your Christmas complete with a visit to this magical stage show that just happens to be a perennial family favourite.

A perennial family favourite, The Snowman has transported generations of children and their families into the wintry world of a boy and his magical snowman. 

As a friendship is kindled, the two embark on a starry-skied adventure to the North Pole, where they meet dancing penguins, reindeer, Father Christmas and escape the clutches of Jack Frost.

With music and lyrics by Howard Blake, including Walking in the Air performed by a live band, choreographed by Robert North and directed by Bill Alexander, the stage show based on the book by Raymond Briggs and the subsequent film has become a much-loved festive tradition for all the family. 

With Ruari Murchison’s enchanting design and Tim Mitchell’s spectacular lighting, this show will delight young and old alike with its captivating mix of dance, music, storytelling, spectacle and magic.
