Snow Play at Waterside Arts, Manchester, 26 January 2020, from £7.50 - Book now

Waterside Arts family theatre programme continues to impress. After the smash hit run of Mr Popper’s Penguins in December comes a one off performance of Snow Play, a highly interactive production, fresh from a successful run in London.

“This is just snow much fun. A sheer delight.” The Stage

What would you do if one year Winter decided to stay and moved into your house? Well that’s what happens in this snowy spectacular, where you are guaranteed a white Christmas, no matter what the weather, or the time of year for that matter! Snow Play is a showdown between Winter and Spring over who gets to stay and who has to go away… We know who we’d rather see leave!

The whole family is invited to get involved in this highly interactive production. Help make a giant snowman, cover a whole house in snow and join in the inevitable snow ball fight.

If you’ve not been to Waterside Arts before then you’re in for a treat. Set back from the Bridgewater canal, in the centre of Sale, it’s a thriving arts venue comprising of a theatre, art galleries and studios. It’s a real community space, where families are well looked after. As a family you’re invited to join their fantastic Family Club (just £7.50 per family for the whole year), for a range of benefits including discounted tickets for the theatre and their family films, as well as entry to their family art club. Well worth checking out.

Running time for Snow Play is 55 minutes with no interval.
