The Olivier Award winning company are turning their improvisation skills to help entertain children during lockdown with a series of Online Storytime adventures.

Having had two West End runs, won an Olivier award, a BBC Radio 4 series and 12 sell-out years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the company are now turning their attention to entertaining children during lockdown.
The newly announced Online Storytime adventures series sees The Showstoppers transforming ideas sent to them from youngsters from age 3 to 13 through social media into musical, interactive adventures all from locked down from their own homes.
This new venture follows on from their 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. They also created their own ‘Alternative Eurovision Song Contest’ which raised £7500 for The Careworkers’ Charity and has been streamed by over 7000 people.
