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!

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
