Family favourite 'The Snowman' flying into The Rep

Stratford Editorial 2nd Jan, 2017   0

FESTIVE favourite The Snowman is flying into The Rep to delight young and old in the new year with its wonderful mix of storytelling, spectacle and magic.

The show, which runs from January 11 to 15, will feature a brand new recording of the iconic song Walking in the Air in a new arrangement by Howard Blake and sung by Aled Jones.

Earlier this year Aled asked composer Howard Blake to create a new arrangement of Walking in the Air whereby he could duet with his younger (recorded) self.

Aled Jones said: “Walking in the Air caps off such a great year for me and I’m thrilled to give it a new lease of life.

“Who knows, maybe we’ll get to the top of the Christmas chart again.”

Based on the book by Raymond Briggs and the film directed by Dianne Jackson and produced by John Coates, this stage show has now transported generations of children and their families into the wintery world of a boy and his magical snowman.

The enchanting show tells the story of a young boy’s adventures when his snowman comes miraculously to life on Christmas Eve.

Featuring a dazzling array of characters including dancing penguins, magical reindeer, a snow princess, her wicked beau Jack Frost and of course, Father Christmas himself, The Snowman is suitable for all ages – including very young children.

Tickets cost from £15 and are available online at or by calling 0121 236 4455.
