    The perfect stocking filler to buy a loved one this Christmas is the timeless classic 'The Snowman™- The Live Stage Show',released on DVD 1st November. Captured in HD and narrated by Joanna Lumley, the film documents the full length stage show for the first time, with 2010 also marking its 10 year anniversary.

    Based on Raymond Briggs' book and the much-loved animated film, 'The Snowman - The Live Stage Show' follows a young boy on a magical moonlit journey. When a snowman the young boy builds on a winter's night comes to life, the two embark on a whirlwind adventure, travelling across the night sky and through enchanted lands, encountering a host of friends along the way.

    The score for the show was written by Howard Blake, who composed the classic soundtrack to the original animated movie. The score for the show is based on his original themes, which he has extended and developed into a feature-length score which is a fundamental element of the show. The timeless hit song 'Walking in the Air' is brought to life in a stunning aerial spectacle.

    Conceived by the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, the stunning live stage show never fails to enthral and captivate generations of audiences during the festive period. An instant triumph which sells out year-on-year, 'The Snowman™ - The Live Stage Show' is the most successful long-running Christmas show ever, with runs planned this year in Birmingham, The Sadler's Wells Peacock Theatre, Cardiff and even Korea.

    Building on aspects of the much-loved animated film, the adapted stage version welcomes a host of new characters and dance numbers. The cast includes penguins, squirrels, reindeer, the Ice Princess, Jack Frost, Father Christmas and of course, an array of Snowmen.

    Perfect as a gift or for family viewing this Christmas, 'The Snowman™ - The Live Stage Show' on DVD will evoke both nostalgia and a festivity in viewers with its iconic musical score, beloved characters and enduring Christmas spirit.
