A LAW firm with offices in Southampton and Winchester has made a financial donation to an upcoming theatre production.

Paris Smith LLP is sponsoring the upcoming SOS Presents production of Monty Python’s Spamalot, which will be at the MAST Mayflower in Southampton from January 24 to January 27.

The sponsorship consists of a financial donation alongside “bums on seats” corporate support.

SOS Presents is the performing name of the Southampton Operatic Society, Southampton’s oldest musical society, which will be celebrating its centenary in 2024.

The group has adopted the MAST Mayflower Studios as its theatrical home and will be performing two shows there as part of its anniversary celebrations, with Spamalot in January followed by Guys & Dolls in June.

Paris Smith, as a Premier Partner with both Mayflower Theatre and MAST Mayflower Studios, has a long history of supporting the city’s artistic and cultural endeavours as well as three previous SOS shows.

SOS Presents Chair, Dr Brigitte Lavoie, said: “SOS has been entertaining Southampton for 100 years, delivering large-scale musicals in professional venues with a full orchestra. We provide a creative outlet for up to 100 people at a time, working on stage or behind the scenes, and entertain thousands more.

“We are very grateful to Paris Smith for once again ensuring we can deliver the high production standards we are known for while keeping our ticket prices accessible.”
