Bugsy Malone Performances

bugsyFollowing on from hugely successful shows such as Oliver! and Our House: The Madness Musical, Castle Manor Academy students are now taking on the popular kid’s show Bugsy Malone. Based on Alan Parker’s fantastic film, join Fat Sam at the liveliest joint in town as he fights to stop his business rival Dandy Dan from closing his Speakeasy down. Enter baby-faced Bugsy Malone, a killer with the ladies and a definite asset to Fat Sam. Unfortunately, Bugsy has also caught the eye of Sam’s girlfriend Tallulah – though he’s set his designs on the showgirl Blousey Brown. Throw in some Charlestons, some ragtime and whole lot of splurge to make one of Castle Manor Academy’s most rip-roaring shows!

Year 10 student Kane Robson takes on the lead role of Bugsy Malone, Abbie Brown (Year 13) takes on role of the wannabe star Blouse Brown, and Charlotte Allin (Year 13) plays the feisty diva and star of Fat’s Sam’s speakeasy Tallulah. Year 11 students Charlie Moody and Will Bailey complete the line up as Fat Sam and Dandy Dan respectively along with a stellar cast of Showgirls, Gangs, Hoodlems and Down and Outs, formed from students across Castle Manor Academy and Place Farm primary Academy.

Musical direction is provided by Karen Sanderson, choreography by Liz Nyberg and direction by Paul Gardiner & Steve Powter. The performances are on Wednesday 16th July and Thursday 17th July, 7.30pm at Castle Manor Academy. Tickets are available by calling the Academy on 01440 705 501, £5 full price, £4 concessions.
