Walking In The Air Hasn't Lost Its Charm Over The Years!

Dance, music and storytelling meet in a magical tale about the titular snowman and the boy who builds him, chronicling how the snowman comes to life and their ensuing adventures. It's a festive must for families with young children - adults and kids alike will be mesmerized by the live orchestral score and choreography, not to mention the classic carol 'Walking In The Air'

The Snowman, with Auntie Nicci and Mummy.

2. What did you think of it - was it good, great, horrible? And why do you think it was like that?

It was great, very good, and we loved it a lot! The time flew by as there was so much to see. We loved how the story of The Snowman was told on the stage. All without words other than "Ho ho ho!" The actors were very special.

3. What was your favourite part of the show?

When The Snowman/men wiggled their bottoms.

The beautiful dancing.

All of the funny parts, like when The Snowman dressed up and put make-up on his cheeks! We laughed a lot!

We also LOVED it when the boy and The Snowman started to fly/walk in the air - that was totally amazing.

4. If you were starring in the show, which character would you be?

Arabella - The Boy or The Snowman

Aurelie - The Boy or The Ice Princess

5. How did the show make you feel when it was finished?

Happy, Christmas-ey, Felt like singing and dancing, wanted to play in the snow.

I was a little sad as I wanted to watch it all again.

6. Would you want to see it again and, if so, who would you take this time?

Yes please! With Daddy and Samuel next time.
