Showstoppers is a Performing Arts Musical Theatre society. If you've any interest at all in performing in, directing, producing, conducting, playing in a band for, writing or seeing musicals, or just giving any of the above a go, this is the society for you. We offer members the opportunity to take part in numerous productions throughout the year, including a "Freshers" show at the beginning of the year (open to anybody who hasn't performed with us before), culminating in the chance to take shows to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

We also run regular open-house meetings for members to improve skills within the musical theatre genre, as well as Cabaret nights offering chances to perform outside of shows.

It's easy to get involved - just drop one of us a message, or come along to a workshop or an audition!.
