We were devastated to hear of the death of André Ptaszynski in July this year.
André was an award-winning producer held in the highest regard throughout UK theatre and the international stage. His ability to spot and develop talent created an impressive résumé, including work with leading comics, blockbuster musicals and nurturing new voices. With his first West End production opening in the late 70s, he was a key player in shaping British theatre and entertainment into the world-leading industry it is today.
A Trustee at Mountview since 2017, he brought incredible experience, wisdom, wit and generosity to our Board and to Mountview as a whole. He will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this very sad time.
We are working with André’s family to create a fund in his memory to continue his passion for nurturing the next generation of diverse theatre makers. If you would like to make a donation in André’s memory, please visit our donation page here.
