Members of the audience will have the power to decide what happens when Showstopper! The Improvised Musical comes to the Farnham Maltings on May 31 at 7.30pm.

Spontaneous musical comedy at its finest, this is the first long-form improv show to have a full West End run, and to be nominated for and win an Olivier Award.

For those who have not yet experienced the live phenomenon that is Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, the show is a fully-realised musical created on the spot from audience suggestions. The cast take ideas for settings, genres, musical styles and the show title, and weave it into ingenious storylines with hilarious characters.

From Lin Manuel Miranda to Stephen Sondheim, whether it is set in a primary school, Ancient Egypt or a mattress shop – if the audience thinks it, The Showstoppers can turn it into a hit musical.

Most of the cast have also earned acclaim in their own right. Founder member Ruth Bratt is in the famous Comedy Store Players, the longest-running improv show in the country; Pippa Evans is a regular on Radio 4 and is on tour with I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue; and co-founder Adam Meggido directed West End and Broadway hit show Peter Pan Goes Wrong.

The Showstoppers also regularly run improvisation workshops and courses for beginners and professionals, and create hilarious and insightful interviews with theatre stars in The Showstopper! Podcast.

The Showstoppers have created and performed more than 1,000 musicals since forming in 2008 but do not stop working hard at their craft – they always encourage audiences to keep them on their toes!
