Showstopper! The Improvised Musical Kids Show

29 June @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


An improvised musical show for kids of all ages, from Olivier Award-winning West End improvisers, The Showstoppers.

If your children could create their very own dream musical – where would they start? The Showstoppers’ Kids Show takes your kids’ ideas and turns them into marvellous, musical adventures from scratch, in front of their very noses.

Together we’ll explore magical kingdoms as kids decide where the story is set, what happens next and who the characters are. A doll’s house? A magic castle? A spooky graveyard? Shaun the Sheep meets Dora at a magic castle? Done! Peppa Pig and Spiderman explore a spooky graveyard? No problem! PAW Patrol battle monsters under the sea? Of course!

From their imaginations to the stage – everything is made up on the spot entirely from audience suggestions, but grown-ups take heed: we ONLY take suggestions from kids!

The Showstoppers – creators of Showstopper! The Improvised Musical and winners of the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and Family Show
