There’s no stopping The Showstoppers! This festive season they are delighted to be part of Christmas at the Palace, bringing festive cheer and much needed laughter with a brand-new musical every night – completely made up on the spot!

After twelve years as an Edinburgh Festival must-see phenomenon, an Olivier Award and over 1000 performances in London and across the UK, The Showstoppers look forward to bringing you a week of singular, one-night-only musical extravaganzas, as Christmassy as you want them to be!

The Showstoppers transform your suggestions - for setting, musical styles, show title and more - into an entirely different show every time. Guaranteed to impress, they spontaneously create shows packed with high drama, superb lyrics, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies.

So, if you’d like to have a musical inspired by A Christmas Carol, Elf or White Christmas or if you are looking for an alternative entertainment to traditional panto, then join The Showstoppers who’ll create your very own Christmas musical on the spot!
