A brand new musical comedy is created from scratch at each performance of this award-winning show as audience suggestions are transformed on the spot into an all-singing, all dancing production with unpredictable and hilarious results. These incredible performers are guaranteed to impress as they create shows packed with drama, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies - it's just all made up on the spot!
