The Magical SLAVA'S SNOWSHOW returns to the UK in 2011

SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW returns to the UK for a eleven week tour – tickets now on sale
Tour ends with a special white Christmas season at London’s Royal Festival Hall 

17 December 2011 – 8 January 2012
Tickets go on sale for the Royal Festival Hall season today, June 20th at 10am

SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW will return to the UK for the first time in three years, touring to Theatre Royal Nottingham, Plymouth Theatre Royal; Southampton Mayflower Theatre; Glasgow Theatre Royal; Edinburgh Festival Theatre; The Lowry Theatre, Salford Quays;  Milton Keynes Theatre and Birmingham Hippodrome.  It will then play a Christmas season at the Royal Festival Hall on London’s Southbank. 

SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is the internationally acclaimed winner of the Time Out, Olivier and Drama Desk awards for most unique theatrical experience. It is a visual masterpiece loved by children and adults alike. A combination of theatrical clowning and stunning spectacle, SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is performed by a highly renowned company of clowns led by Slava Polunin. The show creates a dream-like world where one extraordinary image melts into another culminating in a stunning finale leaving the audience literally knee-deep in snow.

Influenced by artists such as Chaplin, Marcel Marceau and Engibarov, Slava Polunin and his company has taken clowning out of the world of circus, and brought it to theatre lovers, fellow practitioners and families worldwide.   

SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW premiered in the UK in 1994 and has since toured the country, delighting audiences of all ages and winning an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment during its run at the Old Vic in 1998.   The Tony Award nominated show has won accolades the world over receiving the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Unique Theatrical Experience in 2005 and The Stanislavski Award in SLAVA’s native Russia in 2001.  The show’s popularity overseas has seen it performed in 120 cities in 30 countries to more than 3 million spectators in over 4000 performances. 

Recommended for everyone aged 8 and over
