The Snowman ~ Birmingham Repertory Theatre

And the memorable score by Hubert Chappell really took me back to my childhood! This charge does not apply to transactions under £10, group bookings over 50 and school group bookings. Be a part of the magic. Punctuated by the sensational music and lyrics from Howard Blake. Called inside by his mother as the night approaches, the boy leaves his new companion outside, however after being put to bed he sneaks out and finds that his Snowman has come to life and has a penchant for adventures! It was wonderful to watch the really small children gaze in wonder at the quiet parts and dance along to the lively bits. Charming and uplifting, the performers capture the attention of all, leaving even the smallest members of the audience utterly mesmerised.

He attended Brooke House School for Boys in Clapton, - as did Lord Sugar. The stage version dovetails with the film in that we follow the friendship between an over-excited boy waiting for Christmas and even more enthralled to see its snowing. In 1984-85 he attended Bristol University where he gained a Diploma in Social Administration. The 20-minute film has now become a 90-minute stage show with ballet, slapstick and the subplot of Jack Frost Benjamin Harrold, a perfect villain and the Ice Princess Tomoyo Tanimoto Jequier, exquisite. Here the show becomes global as we meet Snowmen and Snowwomen from all continents.

I left the theatre walking through the air as I skipped down Kingsway singing. Lewis Chan gave a superb performance as the boy, the chemistry with Fenton was stunningly palpable. A lesson in the acceptance of semi-permanence, the production is brimming with visual delights from the bright and playful costumes, to the elegant and stunning snow-covered set. He became head boy and was the first person in his family to make it to university, gaining a place at Goldsmiths College in 1978. A pianist joined the orchestra for the rousing musical score as Zeb narrated the story by Raymond Briggs published by which tells of a boy who builds a snowman that comes to life.

Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and many more are among the shows for 2018 at Birmingham Hippodrome, the Grand Wolverhampton, Birmingham Rep and the Alexandra Theatre. My favourite part was the bright bubbling sound of the xylophone as the Snowman and the boy whizzed around the snowy countryside on their motorbike.

From 1985 until 1989 he studied part-time in the evenings for a degree in English Literature at Birkbeck College. The penguins were my favourites though, comical, exact movement and a real double act — kudos to Ami Tollin and Kimberly Lawrie. The atmosphere of the piece is created from a combination of stunning ballet, beautiful, believable characterisation and the strength of the story alone which is told so brilliantly by the utterly incredible cast.

Reviews Captivating The Guardian Heart-melting! This brings a wonderful balletic element to the show which I am sure will inspire many of the young people in the audience to take up ballet or at least ask their parents to take them to see a ballet. Martin Fenton astounds in the title role, he plays the Snowman as if he were wearing a second skin and every move is measured, precise and engaging.
