The Snowman™

Since its release in 1982, The Snowman has become a much-loved Christmas classic. The film is based on a children’s book by Raymond Briggs, with the soft and warmly atmospheric animation style derived from the charm of his illustrations. Its story, of a Snowman who takes a boy on a magical flight to meet Santa Claus, is charming and poignant, and is told without dialogue – through animation and music alone.

The score for The Snowman was composed by Howard Blake, and during his long career it has become his most famous work, particularly his song for child soprano, Walking In The Air.

The Snowman™ and The Snowdog

The Snowman and The Snowdog – the sequel to The Snowman – aired on Christmas Eve, 2012 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of both The Snowman and Channel 4. Bringing some extra fun and mischief to the original story, The Snowdog provides a new way for the whole family to come together each year and re-live the magic.

When a young boy and his mother move house, the boy discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards of his bedroom. In it are a hat, scarf, some lumps of coal and a shrivelled tangerine: a snowman-making kit! Later that day it snows and the boy builds a Snowman and, to keep it company, a Snowdog. During the night they both come to life, and the three embark on magical adventures.

The Bear, the Piano, the Dog and the Fiddle

Book cover of the Bear, the Piano, the Dog and the Fiddle by David Litchfield

The Bear, the Piano, the Dog and the Fiddle by David Litchfield is the sequel to his best-selling book The Bear and The Piano.

Hector and his dog Hugo have made music together through good times, bad times and even some crazy times. But when Hugo learns to play the fiddle and gets the chance to play with Bear’s Big Band, Hector’s jealousy gets the better of him. Can Hector swallow his pride and learn to be for happy for his friend? Set in New Orleans with a new cast of animal musicians, this big-hearted sequel to the best-selling The Bear and the Piano teaches that friendship, like good music, lasts forever.


This production will feature a brand-new animated version of David's wonderful book The Bear, the Piano, the Dog and the Fiddle, together with a specially-created orchestral accompaniment, composed and arranged by Carrot Productions' very own Musical Director, Daniel Whibley, and played live at the shows by our incredible orchestra.

“Magical! The best family event we’ve ever been to”
