About The Snowman

What is The Snowman about?

The Snowman is a night-time quest for adventure when a snowman made by a boy comes to life on Christmas Eve. They travel a long way when they both meet reindeers, dancing penguins, and Father Christmas. Join their travels as the Snowman flies in the night sky and escapes the clutches of Jack Frost to return home on Christmas morning.

This performance lets you in on a story that is going to take your thoughts and spread them across a magical realm. As the Snowman flies away with the boy in the sky, other snowmen also fly away with them to the Snowman's ball. A scarf is presented to the boy by Father Christmas and while the Snowman melts the next day, the boy has the scarf to remember his magical friend. With coal for eyes and buttons and a tangerine for his nose, the Snowman is quite peculiar with his looks. The images in the original film were all beautifully hand-drawn.
