I have been a long standing fan of The Peacock Theatre and have been visiting its productions since I first came to work in London many many MANY years ago. There is always an energetic, fun filled, musical and dance adventure that awaits me and a lovely night out. Since having kids however, it has been a while that I have visited The Peacock Theatre, eventhough I have long know about The Snowman productions.
My friends and family have been giving it rave reviews for years and each year it is on my “to do list” and then somehow other events take over. NOT THIS YEAR.
THIS YEAR, thanks to an invitation from the marketing team, I booked a visit with the kids in NICE AND EARLY and finally, after years of anticipation, we got to see The Snowman on Stage.
What can I say?????
It was AMAZING! If you are a fan of the Snowman Movie with it’s oh so iconic music, you will ADORE this production.
The music, of course, is wonderful. The actors, are amazing. Especially “The Boy” actor – oh my, how every impressive he is for an 11year old. The stage set is gorgeous – it is made to look like a giant snowglobe. The costumes are brilliant (I particularly LOVED the woodland animals and reindeer). And the dance routines are enchanting
There was more than one GASP of delight from the audience…
My kids were transfixed, with giggles and looks of wonder throughout. Simply the best start to the Christmas Season, I have to say and WELL worth a visit!
Take a sneak peak of this promotional video (though season it live is even more enchanting!)
It is worth booking ahead, discounts apply, and you can get some family ticket deals too! Suitable for very young children (there were many babies and toddlers in the audience) right up to “the big kids” (aka grandparents), though I think my kids aged 6yrs and almost 8yrs were the perfect age group!
