LOOK out for the Monty Python award-winning musical Spamalot in Hillingdon next month.

Pastiche Musical Theatre company, based in the borough, returns to the Compass Theatre with its own production, based on the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

It involves King Arthur and his knights of the round table going on a quest to find the ultimate relic, the Holy Grail.

They encounter the beautiful (and feisty) Lady of the Lake, knights who say “Ni”, a terrifying bunny rabbit, coconuts a-plenty and a whole manner of other things, all Python.

Catchy, funny songs, include the familiar Always Look On The Bright Side of Life.

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

Its success encouraged the company to stage another production, Salad Days, in 1998. Ever since, they have held a full musical and concert each year with the proceeds donated to a cause selected by the cast.

Pastiche has raised more than £65,000 for 30-plus organisations and charities, including Hillingdon MIND, Hillingdon Hospital’s Peter Pan Ward, Little Hearts Matter, the Michael Sobell Hospice and Meadow High School. Proceeds from Spamalot will go to Thames Hospice.

Pastiche have been rehearsing weekly since the start of November and tickets are on sale via the Pastiche box office and the Compass Theatre.

Performances are on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, March 20-22, 7.30pm and Saturday, March 23, 2.45 and 7.30.
