Spontaneous, improvised musical comedy at its absolute finest, direct to Theatre Royal Wakefield from the West End.


With fourteen years as an Edinburgh Fringe must-see phenomenon, a BBC Radio 4 series, a critically acclaimed West End run and an Olivier Award to their name, The Showstoppers have delighted audiences across the globe with their ingenious blend of comedy, musical theatre and spontaneity.


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 Lin Manuel Miranda 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.


Packed with drama, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies– and it’s all made up on the spot!
