It's lovely to see the Snowman brought to life, but it wasn't quite all I hoped it would be. Felt like quite a bit of 'filler' to make it last longer. Lots of ballet which my son was very unimpressed by! I was hoping it would feel a bit more magical and that the staging would be more exciting, but it wasn't as impressive as I'd hoped. Lovely festive treat, but very expensive as I don't feel it's as impressive as most West End shows.

I was concerned that my two year old daughter would not be able to focus and watch the whole show because it is 45 mins then a break and another 35. To my delight although she was tired, she was totally wrapt in the show and narrated all the way through clapping heartily at the end. I so enjoyed the show myself it was beautiful professional and stunning. Perfect mix of story telling and simple image and music.
