The Snowman – A Festive Pleasure

The Snowman London musical is based on the celebrated illustrator Raymond Briggs CBE's picture book of the same name. The late John Coates produced the show. The classic British tale by Briggs was also adapted into an animated television special. The sequel entitled The Snowman and the Snowdog was dedicated in Coates' memory shortly following his unfortunate death from cancer.

John Coates was best-known for co-founding the TVC London animation studio in 1957 together with George Dunning. The studio was behind the animation for The Beatles' Yellow Submarine special. In addition, it produced a television series entitled The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends, based on Beatrix Potter's beloved children's book.
