The Showstoppers' Kids Show

The Showstoppers / Something for the Weekend


The Grand - Pleasance Courtyard

The Empty Seat: Please Consider Donating

In light of current Government restrictions and with the priority of public health in mind, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our operation at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and cease sales for The Showstoppers' Kids Show. This poses a significant challenge not only to Pleasance but also Showstoppers/Something for the Weekend who produce the show.

We would welcome any support you are able to provide by donating below. Your donation will be shared between Showstoppers/Something for the Weekend and the Pleasance Theatre Trust, helping us both get through these tough times and back to the stage. We will return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to thrill, amaze, provoke and entertain as soon as we're able to, even if it may have to be in 2021. We look forward to welcoming you then. Thank you.

Any donation value is welcome, please feel free to edit the £5.00 default shown above.


TWO SHOWS ONLY! Here at The Showstoppers’ Kids Show we take kids ideas and turn them into marvellous, musical interactive adventures!

You decide where the story is set, who we meet and where we go. Harry Potter on the moon? Done! Peppa Pig and the Gruffalo meet dinosaurs inside a doll’s house? No worries!

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR GROWN UPS: Children (and ONLY children!) are in charge here – no cheating please! Kids get to decide who our heroes are and what happens next in every story. All they need to do is shout out their ideas and The Showstoppers will bring them to life, right there on the spot. They can even join in!

If your children could create their very own dream musical show, where would they start? An igloo in space? A magical ice palace? And who would the characters be? An astronaut? A tiger? A ghost? From their imaginations straight onto the stage – we’ll bring their ideas to life.
