The stage version of Raymond Briggs’ enchanting children’s story The Snowman flies into Nottingham’s Theatre Royal at the end of the month.

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.

The much-loved story is celebrating 20 years on the stage and runs from Tuesday 28th January until Saturday 1st February.

A glittering host of international snowmen and snow women are joined on stage 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.

Stuart Rogers, producer of the and executive director of Birmingham Repertory Theatre, which is putting on the prodcution, said: “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.”

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

It first appeared as a picture book in 1978 and subsequently inspired the classic BAFTA award-winning animated film featuring Howard Blake’s score.

Tickets are priced £29.50 to £14, plus concessions, and available on 0115 9895555 or at www.trch.co.uk.
