Rent – 11 to 13 April, Sheffield Hallam Students Union

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical – 20 April, Lyceum Theatre

I’m not going to apologise for having three musicals on my list, as this will appeal to fans of fantastic musicals and hilarious improvised comedy alike and has been on my must see list for years. And the best thing, I can’t provide any spoilers as a brand new musical comedy is created from scratch at each performance as audience suggestions are transformed on the spot into all-singing, all-dancing productions with hilarious results.
