Ever wanted to create your own musical? Well, now might be the perfect chance because The Showstoppers! are back this Christmas to transform your suggestions – for setting, musical styles, show title and more – into an entirely different show! 

Olivier Award winners The Showstoppers return to your home screens one final time this year to bring some much needed festive cheer into your living room with a special Christmas edition of their improvised musical livestream.

Guaranteed to have you in stitches one minute and gasping at the sheer brilliance of these incredibly talented performers the next, the Showstopper Livestreams have been a highlight during 2020. Taking suggestions live from you watching at home, the company will create a brand new musical comedy on the spot and stream it direct to your sofa! So whether you fancy ‘White Christmas’ in Waitrose or ‘Elf’ in Edinburgh, you suggest it and The Showstoppers will make it happen!

The show is available to purchase and to watch for 7 days after the live event on Tuesday 22 December at 7.30pm so if you can’t join us live, you can always catch up afterwards.

And if you’d like to see The Showstoppers’ live, they’re about to take up their (socially distanced) four-month residency at the Garrick Theatre, playing six Mondays between 7th December 2020 and 22nd March, 2021.

Rotating cast include: Jonathan Ainscough, Ruth Bratt, Justin Brett, Matt Cavendish, Dylan Emery, Pippa Evans, Susan Harrison, Joshua Jackson, Ali James, Sean McCann, Adam Meggido, Philip Pellew, Andrew Pugsley, Lauren Shearing, Lucy Trodd, Heather Urquhart.

Rotating musicians include: Craig Apps, Christopher Ash, Alex Atty, Jordan Clarke, Pete Furness, Nathan Gregory, Calie Hough, Chloe Potter, Duncan Walsh Atkins, Andrew Woolf.

Every Showstopper! performance is a brand-new musical waiting to happen – so whether you fancy ‘White Christmas’ in Waitrose? Or ‘Elf’ in Edinburgh you say it and – as always – The Showstoppers will make it happen!
