Interactive, musical ‘Online Storytime' specially for children from The Showstoppers

SHOWSTOPPER! The Improvised Musical has been a huge success since 2008 with two West End runs, an Olivier Award, a BBC Radio 4 series and 12 sell-out years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Now The Showstoppers are turning their improv talents to entertain kids during lockdown with a series of Online Storytime adventures.

Armed with dozens of brilliant ideas from youngsters aged from 3 to 13 all sent in via social media, The Showstoppers create marvellous, musical, interactive adventures all locked down from their own homes.

Based entirely on children’s suggestions, the stories are improvised at home, recorded and edited into brand new content for families. The kids decide where the story is set, who the characters are, even the title of the story.

So, if they want to see dragons on the moon fighting alien fairies, or angry sheep eating bananas under the sea, all they need to do is suggest it, and The Showstoppers will make it happen!

Online Storytime – The Space Wars has now been released and can be accessed via www.youtube.com/watch.

During lockdown, The Showstoppers have completed 24 Hour Song Challenges for Elaine Paige, Ramin Karimloo, Derren Brown and Jenna Russell, featuring a subject matter and a musical style of each celebrity’s choosing, plus episodes of The Showstoppers’ Online Storytime for Kids. They also created their own Alternative Eurovision Song Contest which raised £7500 for The Careworkers’ Charity and has been streamed by over 7000 people.
