Edinburgh is over – the autumn tour begins!
The glorious Justin Brett shows what great staging is...
After 23 exhilarating and exhausting evening shows, 12 Family Hour children’s shows, too much deep fried food and not enough sleep, the Stoppers have returned to their holes to rest up until our autumn tour of the UK begins.
Firstly, we would love to thank all the people who came to see us – we had an official sell out for the evening show. Hooray! That’s 350 people a day packing into the Gilded Balloon’s Debating Hall.
Secondly, we had an absolute blast with the children’s show. It was the first time we have done a proper completely new show just for kids and it was a great success. Lovely reviews, great and growing audiences and the use of hundreds of cardboard boxes (if you’ve seen the show, you’ll know what I mean).
There will be more news on the kid’s show soon – for a start, we’ll rename it something a little funkier than Family Hour. But also, we’re hoping to get some touring gigs around the UK.

In the meantime, we have many more gigs of the main show coming up – go to http://www.showstopperthemusical.com/events-2/ to keep an eye out on the calendar of upcoming shows.
Alternatively, sign up to our e-mailing list and follow us on Twitter and Facebook and we’ll keep you informed about what we are up to.
Hope to see you all at a show soon!
Edinburgh Fringe 2013 – here we go!
Rehearsals have been rehearsed, sets painted, hats scrubbed, red and black shirts pressed, jazz shoes spat and polished.
There is just time for the cast to attempt one last minute scouring of Youtube for modern musicals that we’ ve not seen yet. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Once. Viva Forever.
Our cast, musicians and technicians have now gone through the dreaded sound check.
For the evening show, that means 7 cast and 3 musicians all monitored at full volume because we all have to be able to hear each other at all times to be able to improvise, even thought this makes life a living Hell for our sound engineer.
We are particularly excited this year because of the launch of our FAMILY HOUR show, which runs from Aug 2-13 at 2pm in the Gilded Balloon.
We’ve had a blast creating this show and it will be a fabulous, chaotic, joyful fun explosion. You can pretend you are coming to see it for the sake of your kids. We won’t tell.
Fun and Games
Then in the evening, we have our evening show for adults throughout the month (Aug 2-25 but not 22nd), where we want you to bring us the biggest challenges – bring us awesome settings; think of the coolest composers to inspire us; the craziest twists to challenge our brains. And keep the chair on his toes!
Buy your tickets here and we look forward to seeing you at Gilded Balloon!
