The show will be available to watch for 48 hours after the live event so those who can’t watch it live, can catch up after.

Tickets are £9.50, Concessions: £6’.50 plus booking fees

The livestream link will be sent to ticketholders 2 hours before the performance.

Running time: 1hr 20mins plus 10 min interval

Every ticket sold helps to keep these talented artists working and the company to stay afloat during these trying times.

Some comments from the first ‘Showstopper! The (Socially Distanced!) Improvised Musical’:

3rd time watching @TheShowstoppers livestream and it just keeps getting better! Vision mixing = phenomenal. Music = incredible. Improvising = amazing. Everything @ruthbratt said had me in giggles. Fave line has to be “You were the one I wanted to find on the last page”

Thank you, Showstoppers, for a brilliant evening! Hilarious as always, and what a great set-up you had there to keep everyone safe. Keeping my fingers crossed for more of these livestreams soon

@TheShowstoppers improvised online musical tonight was the closest I’ve got to live theatre for 4 months! Brilliant. Hilarious. How the buggery do they do that? This is how live theatre adapts. Bravo!

Had a fab evening watching @TheShowstoppers socially distanced musical. It had everything – horror, love, raps, secret passageways, affairs Face with tears of joy Such a talented bunch, even when adapting to a new way of working. Loved it.

Just watched socially distanced @TheShowstoppers streamed live. BRILLIANT to be enjoying #theatre again, cast & crew totally INCREDIBLE as always, don’t know how these talented wonders do it. If you haven’t experienced this yet look out for next one, amazing.
