Olivier Award-winning musical improvisers The Showstoppers has announced two runs in London with their Christmas Kids shows firstly at Woolwich Works on 9th and 10th Dec followed by their return to The Other Palace theatre from Thursday 21st – Saturday 23rd December.
If your children could create their very own dream musical – where would they start? The Showstoppers’ Christmas Kids Show takes 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. The Showstoppers Christmas Kids Show promises to bring all your kids’ Christmas ideas to life! Shaun the Sheep meets Dora at the North Pole? Done! PAW Patrol help Father Christmas deliver presents? No problem! Peppa Pig and Spiderman build a snowman? 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!
Get your Christmas holiday off to an hilarious start with The Showstoppers’ Christmas Kids Show! VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR GROWN UPS: Children (and ONLY children!) are in charge here - no cheating please! Kids get to decide who our heroes are and what happens next in every story. All they need to do is shout out their ideas and The Showstoppers will bring them to life - with music and comedy - right there on the spot. They can even join in!
The group are well known and renowned for their improvisation work. Most cast members have also received acclaim in their own right. The Showstoppers have been working on ’Showstopper! The Improvised Musical’ since 2008, exploring out how to improvise in increasingly esoteric styles, musical, dance, straight theatre, and film genres to name but a few. They regularly run improvisation workshops and courses for beginners and professionals and have a successful podcast - The Showstopper! Podcast.
The Showstoppers - creators of Showstopper! The Improvised Musical and winners of the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and Family Show - return to The Other Palace following their 2019 residency. In the Autumn of 2015, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical became the first longform improv show to have a full run in the West End at the Apollo Theatre, and continues to play monthly at the Cambridge in London’s West End.
