It is with regret that Pastiche announce that due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision in the interest of the safety of our cast, crew, musicians and audiences to postpone our upcoming production of Nunsense: The Mega Musical.
We will be sourcing alternative dates with our theatre and still fully intend to bring this wonderful and funny show to you – our nuns will be back and funnier than ever!
We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this decision will cause but hope very much that you understand and come and support us later in the year.
If you have booked tickets through Pastiche’s Box Office, we will soon be in touch to discuss your booking. If you have booked your tickets through the Compass Theatre Box Office, they will be contacting you as stated on their website.
All at Pastiche wish you well during this unprecedented time – keep washing your hands and keep yourselves safe.
Pastiche are monitoring the advice of Public Health England (PHE) in relation to the COVID-19 virus extremely closely and consider the health and safety of our cast, crew, musicians, staff and most of all audiences as our top priority. At present, it has not been advised that events are cancelled in the wake of the virus outbreak and as such, in true theatrical form, at present the show must/will go on until we are advised otherwise.
We are continuing to operate in Business as Usual mode and will be putting in steps to ensure that PHE advice such as hand washing can be fulfilled at The Compass when we perform. Should any further advice be issued by PHE, we will follow this advice to the letter and will announce any changes via our website and Social Media channels.
We look forward to performing this very funny show to audiences and hope very much they will come to support us and London’s Air Ambulance, the charity selected to benefit from this production.
With 30 days to go until our production of Nunsense: The Mega Musical opens at The Compass Theatre, we at Pastiche are very proud to announce that our chosen charity for this production is London’s Air Ambulance.
Founded in 1989, the aim of the charity is to save more lives in the London area (within the M25) through providing rapid and cutting-edge medical care to those who need it most, be it a fall from height, knife or gunshot wounds or incidents on the roads or our public transport systems.
The London Air Ambulance are able to perform open heart surgery, blood transfusions, give general anaesthetic and carry out life saving procedures in situ, meaning their actions save lives.
The Air Ambulance almost solely rely on donations to keep the service running for the 10 million people they serve – having to raise upwards of £8 million a year to be able to do so.
We were proud and honoured to visit the Air Ambulance at their Central London base recently, meeting members of the team and going up to (the very windy) 17th floor roof of a London hospital to see the Air Ambulance for ourselves and learn more about how the charity works and operates.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that all of us who went were extremely humbled to meet the heroes (a word they don’t like to use themselves) who run this vital service and to find out more about this wonderful charity.
We hope to raise as much money as we can to support this service – you can help us do so by making sure you book to see Nunsense!
