SU POLLARD leads the cast of Side by Side by Sondheim

Side By Side By SondheimTV favourite Su Pollard leads the cast of the 2015 London revival of Side By Side By Sondheim. Su Pollard has enjoyed a career spanning over 40 years, including notable appearances on the West End in Me and My Girl, SHOUT! and on television in The Royal Variety Show.

She first captured the nation’s hearts as Peggy, the downtrodden chalet maid, in Hi-de-Hi, appearing in the hit BBC sitcom for nine series. Su then went on to become a household name, entertaining audiences with numerous appearances on television and stage, alongside a UK No.2 single Starting Together.

Su is thrilled at this point in her career to be celebrating the work of Stephen Sondheim this September at the Jack Studio Theatre, and to be performing some of his most iconic songs, including I’m Still Here, Getting Married Today and the legendary Send In The Clowns.

The trio of performers is completed by the West End’s Marianne Benedict (Women On The Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, The Wizard of OZ, We Will Rock You, Sweeney Todd) and Grant McConvey (Sondheim Society Student Performer of the Year).
