The Concept
What happens when you get 7 incredible singers and beatboxers together? Pure, unadulterated magic, that’s what! Gobsmacked! is the next generation a cappella show that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. The amazing cast of Gobsmacked! will take you on an aural adventure that promises to leave you with a smile on your face and a song in your heart. From doo-wop to drum and bass, no genre is off-limits in this incredible a cappella journey.

The Idea
Though one of the oldest forms of music, a cappella singing has only recently broken through to mainstream popularity. Movies such as Pitch Perfect and Glee and groups like Pentatonix, Naturally 7 and The Magnets have catapulted a cappella from street corners to stadiums. The producers of Gobsmacked! have created a “STOMP for voices” show for the whole family that takes the audience on a journey through music. Gobsmacked! not only showcases modern a cappella at its best but also weaves an urban tale of love, loss and redemption.

The Cast
The cast of Gobsmacked! were chosen from more than 700 applications from all over the world. Representing countries as diverse as Brasil, Australia, the US and Britain the Gobsmacked! team bring all of their experience and voices together to create one unique and exciting show full of beautiful harmonies and incredible beats.

The Team
The creative team behind Gobsmacked! represents the some of the most exciting a cappella and theatrical talent of the last few years. They have worked with artists such as Daft Punk, Britney Spears, Jose Carreras, Buena Vista Social Club and Soweto Gospel Choir and have produced and directed shows in venues such as the O2 Arena in London and The Sydney Opera House
