The Showstoppers’ Kids’ Show

The Showstoppers take their improv skills to the playground.

The Showstoppers’ Kids’ Show

Even sillier and enthused with the imaginations of children – it couldn't possibly go wrong. They do their lowest-of-low-tech pre-set as we walk in, which can be used as an easel for whatever the children conjure up.

With the children's suggestion, their improvisation is as inventive as expected – if not slightly geared towards adult knowledge for comfort. The music is infectious and a great deal of fun. The perfect level of physicality and audience interaction as you wanted in a children's show.

The world they created was mad and magical and marvellous and was lapped up at every turn. Of course, making it an impromptu sing-along is yet another sign of their greatness. A high energy delight for children any age up to twelve and plenty of entertainment for the parents, too.

Sold out – and for good reason.

Bhav loves films and TV too much. As Voice's Media Editor, his writing on Voice is generally geared towards film and TV but as Voice's Arts Award Editor you'll also hear from him as curator of the Gold Hub. Other than film and TV he takes a crack at writing about all art but holds a special place in his heart for soul music and comedy. Has just finished Parks and Recreation and feels a void left in his life.
