Pastiche presented Rick Besoyan’s Little Mary Sunshine in 2002.
The show gently spoofs such old-time favourites like “Rose Marie” and “Naughty Marietta” but has a personality all its own. The plot is a little bit of everything: Colorado Rangers led by stalwart Captain Jim; the lovely Mary Sunshine, her ‘naughty’ maid Nancy; a chorus of giggling schoolgirls and the ominous but benevolent Indian chief. Hearts are won and lost and won again, in this delightful, laugh-filled and charming show.
The score features songs including In Izzenschnooken On The Lovely Essenzook Zee, Tell a Handsome Stranger, Mata Hari and Do You Ever Dream of Vienna?
The show raised £1,750 which was donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign. In 2015, the Breast Cancer Campaign merged to become Breast Cancer Now.
