Okay fellas, this is our moment. Keep a cool head and keep those fingers pumpin’, ‘cause remember, it’s history you’ll be writin’.
The Bugsy Malone stage musical follows the 1976 film, which was produced with a cast consisting entirely of young people, including a 13 year old Jodie Foster. It is set in Chicago in the 1920’s and concerns the battle for criminal supremacy of rival gangs led by Fat Sam and Dandy Dan. Into the mix steps aspiring boxing promoter Bugsy Malone, who becomes involved with aspiring night club singer Blousey Brown, and agrees to help Fat Sam turn the tables on his rival. The ‘weapons’ in this story are, of course, splurge guns and in the finale, just about everyone gets ‘splurged’ before getting up and realizing they can all be friends after all.
With well known songs such as ‘Bugsy Malone’, ‘Fat Sam’s Grand Slam’ and ‘Bad Guys’ and exciting dance routines, this is a massively popular show with young casts everywhere, and a show for audiences of all ages to enjoy.
The cast of talented local young people will ensure that this will be a production to remember.
