|The Peacock Theatre|
As a Christmas present for my niece, I took her to watch a production at the Peacock Theatre. Granted, not the prettiest building from the outside, but a nice little theatre inside.
We went to watch a production of the classic Christmas story of The Snowman by the Birmingham Repertory Theatre Company.
|My niece Kiera|
It was such a beautiful ballet - or mime as my niece called it - that I would recommend to anyone. The music gave me goosebumps and I'll admit that when the Snowman and boy first flew on the stage I even got a little tearful. The dancers were great and portrayed the animals amazingly. I was transported back to being a small child again watching the now classic Channel 4 animation on TV.
The Peacock Theatre is part of the Sadler's Well's group of theatres - the other two are the Sadler's Wells main theatre and the Lilian Baylis Studio. The website to book a show at the Peacock Theatre is http://www.sadlerswells.com/. The theatre is located at Portugal Street, London WC2A 2HT and is a short walk from either Holborn or Covent Garden Underground stations. Sadler's Wells is also on Twitter, so as usual, go follow them @Sadlers_Wells. Now, what show are you going to watch?
