Northcott Futures Musical Improvisation Masterclass with Showstopper! the improvised musical

Musical Improvisation Masterclass with Showstopper!: Exeter Northcott Futures

  • Show Information

We are very excited to welcome the team from Showstopper! The Improvised Musical to run a masterclass for anyone interested in developing their talents as musical improvisers. With over 11 years of experience creating improvised musical shows all across the world, now they make land in Exeter to help you develop your skills in improvisation with music.

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical has been a rip-roaring success since the show started in 2008. It has had eleven sell-out years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, two West End runs, an Olivier award and a BBC Radio 4 series. In the show, the audience meets a writer of musicals who is on a deadline – he needs their help. The audience shouts out suggestions of a setting, musical styles and the title of the show and they’re off! The Showstopper team – cast and band – will then weave a brand new musical in front of the very eyes of the audience, complete with hilarious characters, fabulous dance routines, beautiful songs, epic story lines, all sprinkled with the pzazz of a Broadway show.

You need to be 18+ years to participate in this workshop.
