PSA is very pleased to announce it's 2018 show, the pint-sized, pinstriped classic that’s a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920s.
Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Baio and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, Bugsy Malone is good, clean, comedic fun!
Two gangs comprised completely of children, square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan’s gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the “splurge” gun (a weapon that shoots whipped cream). Now, Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last chance that Fat Sam’s gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love, Blousey, but that just isn’t in the cards for our hero.
Bugsy Malone is a master class in musical comedy and will be hitting the Melton Theatre stage from Friday the 6th to Sunday the 8th of April. A large and talented youth cast will be performing the classic show which includes such well known numbers as Tomorrow, Bad Guys, Ordinary Fool and You give a little love to name a few. Tickets are on sale now at the Melton Theatre Box Office (Tel 01664 851111) or online at https://www.meltontheatre.co.uk/event/bugsy-malone
