HILLINGDON-based Pastiche Musical Theatre company return to the Compass Theatre, Ickenham, in May with a production of Stephen Sondheim’s musical, Company.

It features songs such as Not Getting Married, You Could Drive A Person Crazy and Sondheim’s iconic anthem, Being Alive.

Pastiche was formed in January 1997 when Jean Hobson and Jean George decided to create a one-off production of Sandy Wilson’s The Boy Friend, performed at the Compass in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Its success encouraged the company to stage another production, Salad Days, in 1998. Ever since, it has staged a musical and a concert each year, with the proceeds donated to a charity selected by the cast.

Pastiche has raised in excess of £62,000 for causes including Hillingdon MIND, Hillingdon Hospital’s Peter Pan Ward, Little Hearts Matter, the Michael Sobell Hospice and Meadow High School.

Proceeds from this latest production will go to Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

PERFORMANCES: Wednesday, Thursday and Friday May 10-12, 7.30pm, Saturday, May 13, 2.45 and 7.30pm.
