Join us in The Showstoppers' Christmas grotto where our clever Improv Elves are ready and waiting to take kids' ideas and suggestions and transform them on the spot into hilarious, magical, musical adventures.
Spiderman meets Harry Potter at the North Pole? It's gonna happen! Peppa Pig joins Father Christmas on his sleigh? No problem! Dora The Explorer goes to outer space with Captain Marvel and creates magical Christmas carols on the moon? Just shout it out and The Showstoppers will bring it all to life in front of your eyes!
Kids (and only kids!) are in charge in the grotto, and they get to decide everything, from who our heroes are to what happens next. They can even join in!
A completely different performance each and every time, The Showstoppers' Christmas Kids Show! Really is the only family show you'll need this festive season!
No two shows are ever the same as The Showstoppers take audience suggestions and spin a brand-new comedy musical out of thin air each and every time; stories, characters, melodies, lyrics, dance numbers, harmonies and all - with hilarious results. If you thought improv looked hard, try doing it in time (and in tune) to music! And then try doing it in front of an audience full of kids...
Having grown since 2008 to become the UK's most acclaimed and in-demand musical improvisers, The Showstoppers have become a must-see staple of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
