Showstopper! - the Improvised Musical

  • Robert Bolt Theatre Waterside Arts 1 Waterside Plaza, Sale Trafford, M33 7ZF (map)

Presented by Something for the Weekend

When you come and see Showstopper! The Improvised Musical you will see a bunch of improvisers who have learned how to make up a fully-realised musical on the spot based on audience suggestions. It includes incredible, moving story-lines, amazing songs, full group harmonies, dance numbers. It’s also very funny to watch.

We’ve been working on this show since 2008, working out how to improvise in increasingly esoteric styles – musical, dance, straight theatre, film genres – whatever helps us make the show more interesting.

We also spend a lot of time trying to become better story-tellers so we can not only do your ideas justice, but so that each show is as different as it can be. It’s an all-consuming and never-ending task but we love it.

“They truly are the masters of longform improvisation. These guys have to be seen to be believed! The best musical improvisation group we’ve ever come across. More TALENT on stage than you can shake a stick at!” Time Out
“A joyous, uproarious collaboration … for sheer madcappery, refreshingly wholesome, good-natured musical slapstick, The Sticking Place’s musical high-wire act is hard to beat.” Independent on Sunday – 5/5
“Just SUBLIME… Consistently funny… This bunch are sharp. Anyone with a love for musicals or comedy should see this show and help create another classic.” Scotsman
