"The Snowman" delighted audiences in Cardiff and once again becomes a huge hit in another city!

Jenna had a wonderful time premiering The Snowman in another city to extremely responsive audiences.

"It felt more like being in a concert arena than in a theatre, the applauds and audience reaction was incredible. It might have helped a little that I was playing 'Welshy', the new addition to the snowman family!" says Jenna.

The cast are now having a short break before transferring the show to London's West End. They will open at The Peacock theatre, Holborn, on December 1st.
