The Only All Woman Band in the West End - A Networking Event


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

On June 11th, Showstopper will be making history again with the only all woman band in the whole of Theatreland!

Led by conductor and pianist Yshani Perinpanayagam, our musicians (Chloe Potter - Reeds, Alex Atty - Percussion) will accompany The Showstoppers as they create yet another fully improvised West End Musical.

Very few musicians in West End orchestras, and almost no musical directors, are women. Yet London can count any number of superb female musicians.

To highlight this, The Showstoppers will be hosting a Networking event at the Lyric, Shaftesbury Avenue, from 6pm, before the show*, inviting anyone interested in opening up this discussion around blocks to female musicians and encouraging more women into the West End pits.

So please join us to help highlight this under-used talent and celebrate our wonderful #LadiesoftheStave.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to duncanwalshatkins@gmail.com

*Attendance of the show is not mandatory. If you would like to attend the show post networking, please state this in your RSVP and we will happily send you a code for discount tickets.
