Showstopper! The Improvised Musical

A brand new musical is created from scratch at each performance of this award-winning production, which has played sell-out seasons in London’s West End and at the Edinburgh Festival. Audience suggestions help to create a show on the spot, as the all-singing, all-dancing cast improvise with unpredictable and frequently hilarious results.

Packed with drama, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies, Showstopper! leaves delighted audiences singing all the way home. If you love musical theatre, do not miss this show!
