Showstopper! – The Improvised Musical sees a brand-new musical comedy created from scratch as audience suggestions are transformed on the spot into all-singing, all-dancing production with hilarious results. These incredible performers are guaranteed to impress as they create shows packed with drama, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies right in front of the audience. So whether you fancy some Rodgers and Hammerstein set on a Ferris wheel or a little Sondheim on Mount Everest, you suggest it and The Showstoppers will sing it there and then…

For younger audiences, The Showstoppers’ Kids Show takes all the talents of The Showstoppers to do a show for kids – every insane suggestion, every inspired idea, every joyful noise will get used to create a bonkers, brilliant and hilarious show.
