You’ve been able to see those clever Showstoppers on-line during lock down but now you can see them live as part of this week’s events at the New Normal Festival. If you are a musical theatre fan and have never experienced the company’s comic invention as they create on-hoof musical parodies inspired by audience suggestions you are in for a treat. If you already know how they operate you won’t need convincing but the company will be just as likely to leave you open-mouthed in admiration as they are as nimble with their vocal chords as they are with their wit.
Spontaneous musical comedy at its absolute finest - direct from the West End and now heading to the New Normal Festival in an intimate, stripped back open-air performance of their Olivier Award winning show.

A brand new musical comedy is created from scratch at each performance of this awardwinning show as audience suggestions are transformed on the spot into all-singing, all-dancing productions with hilarious results. These incredible performers are guaranteed to impress as they create shows packed with drama, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies – it’s just all made up on the spot!
