The Snowman

star 1star 2star 3star 4

Until January 3, 2016

The wildly successful live stage adaptation of Raymond Brigg's best-loved childrens' cartoon makes another return to the Peacock this Christmas. On a cold winter's night, a young boy gets the surprise of his life, when the snowman that he built that day magically comes to life! Together they embark on a wondrous adventure, and escape peril by the troublesome Jack Frost. A must-see for youngsters and adults alike, this will relight your Christmas spirit!

Immortal Tango

March 1-19, 2016

From the choreographer who brought us Tango Fire: Flames of Desire comes a new glamourous experience that juxtaposes old Hollywood glamour with smouldering Argentine tango dancing. Think of it as Chicago's Cellblock Tango meeting L.A Confidential. International tango star German Cornejo and his team of prodigious dancers dip, sway and whip their way around the Peacock Theatre stage in a performance that evokes old-time glamour and sultry heat.

The Merchants Of Bollywood

May 24-June 11, 2016

Back in London after their successful run in 2011, this Bollywood dance extravaganza returns with all the flair, color and high-octane dance that you've missed! Choreographed by celebrated Bollywood dance impresario Vaibhavi Merchant, the stage musical is loosely based on two real-life figures in India; an aging Indian temple dance purist, and his more modern Bollywood-style granddaughter. When their two styles clash, it seems that the family bond is broken - but can they resolve their differences to carry on both traditions?
