Hello, Sorry

The Showstoppers create a song about losing internet and phone signals in lockdown

Improv group the Showstoppers were challenged by Olivier award-winning West End star Jenna Russell to create a song about losing internet and phone connection in the style of Hello Dolly.

And the result – Hello, Sorry – is below.

They were given just 24 hours to create the toe-tapper, as part of an ongong 24-Hour Song Challenge in aid of the Care Workers fund.

Adam Meggido and Ali James wrote the words, performed by Jonathan Ainscough, Justin Brett, Joshua Jackson, Ali James and Philip Pellew, with musical arrangements and production by Duncan Walsh Atkins.
