Press coverage

Full press release

Award-winning troupe The Showstoppers are back for their sixth year at the Fringe with their Improvised Musical and this time they have created an additional brand new show for kids (and their parents!) The Showstoppers' Family Hour.

Premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe 2013, The Showstoppers' Family Hour will create a new musical adventure at every performance. It's all made up on the spot and the team will use the same quick wits and musical creativity that have made them something of a Fringe institution to make stories that kids will love and remember. The challenge will be to use themselves, the band, a set of simple props and any willing audience members to create all the brilliant songs, hilarious characters and amazing sets needed to make a brand-new musical masterpiece every day.
