The Snowman

When the Christmas season rolls around there are plenty of shows for people young and old to witness that will get them into the festive spirit. But it just wouldn’t be Christmas if one of these wasn’t “The Snowman”, the ballet version of the famous novel and animated film, which appears every year at the Peacock Theatre and welcomes an abundance of eager audience members. So later in the year the show is set to return with a full run during the festive months, giving audiences their latest chance to pick up theatre tickets experience an iconic adventure unfold.

First emerging as a book by Raymond Briggs in the late 1970s, “The Snowman” would capture the imaginations of audiences nationwide and when the animated film found its way to television screens in 1982 its impact was solidified. The famous song “Walking in the Air” became a huge part of popular culture and is remembered and sung even to this day, losing none of its charm whenever it makes its appearance in the film and when it is performed at the Peacock Theatre.

The ballet version was the brainchild of both Robert North and Howard Blake and their stage adaptation of one boy’s adventure with his snowman at Christmas would go on to appear on stages across the continent before it landed at its seasonal home in front of London theatre audiences at the Peacock Theatre.

The story, of course, deals with a boy who decides to build a snowman on a particularly snowy evening. That night it is Christmas eve and when he goes downstairs he is shocked to find that the snowman has come to life and the pair soon head out for the time of their lives as the snowman uses his ability to fly to take the boy above the rooftops and the countryside to the wonderful music of “Walking in the Air”.

Raymond Briggs is a multi-talented author and in addition to “The Snowman” his work includes “Father Christmas”, “Father Christmas Goes on Holiday”, “When the Wind Blows” and “The Bear”.

“The Snowman” runs at Sadlers Wells’ West End outlet, the Peacock Theatre, this Christmas season.
