    About Showstopper The Improvised Musical

    A top producer needs your help. He’s been asked to present a brand new musical - a sure-fire West End hit - but he’s stuck for ideas. Every night he takes prompts for name, setting, music genre and more from the audience, so you might find your suggestion brought to life live on stage.

    From Phantom of the Operating Table to Sex, Drugs and Sausage Roll, every night is a premiere with the Showstopper team, and none of them know what they’ll be performing until the suggestions start rolling in.

    This wacky and brilliant show, steered each night by a hugely talented team of actors, musicians and techies, premiered at Edinburgh Fringe Festival before transferring to the West End for a series of residencies. In 2016 it won the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and Family Show, and has remained a fast favourite ever since.

    Crowds rush to see what the team have got hidden up their sleeves every Monday night… and if there’s any end to their astounding improv skills, they’ve shown no signs of it yet!

    Showstopper Improvised Musical Creative Team

    The Showstopper troupe is headed up by creators and performers Adam Meggido and Dylan Emery, who devised and premiered the show back in 2008.

    The cast on any given night includes Ruth Bratt, Justin Brett, Matt Cavendish, Jonathan Ainscough, Pippa Evans, Susan Harrison, Joshua C Jackson, Ali James, Sean McCann, Philip Pellew, Ethan Pascal Peters, Martha Pothen, Andrew Pugsley, Lauren Shearing, Joy Tan, Lucy Trodd and Heather Urquhart.

    Showstopper also features a group of musicians who perform live every night - a crucial role for any musical, and you will be amazed by how quickly they can come up with melodies for the cast to sing along to.
