The Showstoppers’ Christmas Kids Show! - Christmas In Leicester Square

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

SHOWSTOPPER! The Improvised Musical (Best Entertainment and Family Show Olivier Award winners 2016) are bringing a seasonal helping of their hit family show to London this Christmas.

The Showstoppers’ Christmas Kids Show! will be presented in The Paradiso Speigeltent as part of Christmas in Leicester Square from December 16 to December 30, 2017. Tickets are on sale now.

In a Christmas grotto, the Showstopper Elves are ready and waiting to take kids’ ideas and suggestions and transform them on the spot into hilarious, magical, musical interactive adventures.

Pirates at the North Pole? Done! Harry Potter in Lapland? No problem! The Gruffalo singing carols with Peppa Pig? Just shout it out and The Showstoppers will bring it to life!

Kids (and only kids!) are in charge, and they get to decide everything from who the heroes are to what happens next. They can even join in!

No two shows are ever the same as The Showstoppers take audience suggestions and spin a brand-new comedy musical out of thin air – stories, characters, tunes, lyrics, dances, harmonies and all – with unpredictable and hilarious results. If you thought improv looked difficult before, try doing it in time (and tune) to music! Then try doing it in front of an audience of kids…

The rotating cast features some of the brightest minds in the world of comedy and musical theatre. The rotating company for The Showstoppers’ Christmas Kids Show! will include Showstopper regulars – Ruth Bratt, Dylan Emery, Susan Harrison, Ali James, Sean McCann, Adam Meggido, Philip Pellew, Andrew Pugsley, Lauren Shearing, Lucy Trodd and Duncan Walsh Atkins (MD).

Ticket prices: £15 (£13.50 concessions); £52 Family Ticket (a group of 4 to include a minimum of one adult). £1.50 booking/transaction fees apply per ticket or per family ticket.

Times: 1.30pm (shows at 11.30am and 1.30pm on Saturday, December 23 and 30).

Running Time: 60 minutes.
