  • 22nd Jan 2024 - 1st Jul 2024

For those who haven't yet experienced the live phenomenon that is Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, the show is a fully realised musical created on the spot from audience suggestions. The cast transform suggestions for settings, genres, musical styles and even the name of the show into ingenious storylines with hilarious characters. From Pink Floyd to Stephen Sondheim, via a primary school, Ancient Egypt, or a mattress shop - if the audience can suggest it, The Showstoppers will perform it. It's hugely funny to watch.

The group are long running, well known and renowned for their improvisation work. Most cast members have also received acclaim in their own right. The Showstoppers have been working on the show since 2008, figuring out how to improvise in increasingly esoteric styles, including musical, dance, straight theatre, and film genres to name but a few.
