We took a 3 year old boy and 5 year old girl to see The Snowman in December 2007 and they absolutely loved it. The production was perfectly balanced and timed to engage both of them with some wonderful theatrical moments that the children loved. The flying sequences were wonderful and there is a great suprise at the very end, which I won't spoil, but will say that its worth getting seats in the middle front stalls section.

Myself & my Mum took my 6 year old and 2 year old daughters to this show back in December 2007 and what a fantastic show it was. I really thought my 2 year old would be bored but she was transfixed by it all and really upset when it ended - fabulous show and worth going to see again - in fact we have just booked again this December 2008. Enjoy !!!!

This was the second time I took one of my great nieces/nephews to see The Snowman. For them it was a magical experience. I have to say that there were some very young children in the audience and you could hear a pin drop, even the adults sat spellbound and I felt myself get quite emotional when the Snowman and the little boy started to fly. It is a must for all young children 3 years and upwards, it has everything - even an appearance from Santa Claus. I am waiting for the rest of my great nieces/nephews to grow a little older so I can take them and repeat the experience. Definitely a five star rating!

Our little girl (4) adored this show and so did we. Magical, moving and at times very funny, this is a wonderful treat for the whole family. Re the other reviews on this page: good advice about sitting in the stalls, I agree it gives the best view; and, with respect, the lady who couldn't get to the show due to the weather is being somewhat unreasonable - would expect the theatre to refund in comarable situations, e.g. if you were ill, stuck in traffic, flight delayed?

having just read the review of roberto,s visit to the show 7/12/2012, i find it very hard to see how a show that has run for 13 years detereate so quickly.having been associated with the show (my grandson lewis coppen)has played the main part for the previouse four years all over the world, with rave reviews,about the whole production, i suggest roberto is a very hard person to please.

This is a wonderful show and my four year old loved it. Magical. Love the fact that it is so kid friendly as well.

My (nearly) 3yo nephew and 5yo niece utterly loved this! Nephew was enthralled the entire way through, niece loved dancing and costumes. Can't recommend enough. Planning on taking my 1yo daughter Xmas this year! Think she'll love it too. I'd say 5 is on the edge of the age group. A little older and it will lose some of the kiddy magic :-)
