Showstopper: The Improvised Musical has been enthralling audiences since 2008 and the team are set to head to out across the UK again next year.

The concept is simple but hugely effective and great fun. Minutes before the curtain is supposed to go up, the writer gets a call from the producers saying they hate everything about the show and need a new one put together right away. The writer asks the audience for help and between them they select the theme, the style, the era and the title of the show that's about to be performed. With only those few details, the Showstopper team then put on a brand new musical fit for any West End stage.

With song, music, acting and comedy all rolled into one amazing (and new each night) production, Showstopper: The Improvised Musical is a show not to be missed (and seen again and again).
