The Edinburgh Fringe and West End sell-out improv-group The Showstoppers visit Worthing’s Connaught Theatre for the first time with their new show Showstopper! The Improvised Musical on October 4.
A brand new musical comedy will be created from scratch at the two performances by The Showstoppers in Worthing, as the group transform ever-evolving audience suggestions into a musical filled with song, dance and unpredictable, hilarious results.
The cast of improvisers have learned how to create a fully-realised musical as soon as they receive plot suggestions shouted from the audience. The combination of moving story-lines with song and dance numbers as well as full group harmonies develops organically, drawing influences from musicals, dance, theatre and film to most effectively tell the story.
The award-winning show has been a must-see phenomenon at the Edinburgh Fringe for the past six years, had four sell-out West End seasons and has become an acclaimed BBC Radio 4 series.
The show began life as a workshop at the Actors’ Centre in London, when Dylan Emery, Adam Meggido and Ken Campbell took a group of actors with little or no improvisation experience and within a week attempted to get them to perform an hour-long musical in front of a packed house. The show was such a success that Dylan and Adam gathered a group of professional actors to and create a fully-fledged show which immediately secured financial backing from composer and director Keith Strachan and funded the group’s Edinburgh Fringe and London residencies.
In Showstopper! The Improvised Musical any plot and song-style suggestions can be united, whether it is Sondheim on a ski lift or Cole Porter in a corner shop, The Showstoppers will sing it.
