Event Details

Shaftesbury Arts Centre’s Music and Drama group present Alan Parker’s Bugsy Malone this October. Play by Alan Parker. Words and Music by Paul Williams. By arrangement with Faber Music Ltd on behalf of Warner/Chappell Music Ltd.

Set in New York in 1929, Bugsy Malone sees two rival gangs battling it out for domination – Fat Sam, who owns Fat Sam’s Grand Slam, and Dandy Dan. When Fat Sam’s gang is brutally splurged and his empire under severe threat, he engages the help of Bugsy Malone, a smooth-talking man about town who also has a soft spot for one of the show girls – Blousey Brown.  Join us to see how the rival gangs try to beat each other and how the pandemonium comes to a sticky end!

Say hello to Bugsy Malone – our would-be hero, accompanied by splurge guns, custard pies, speakeasy dancing girls and a whole lot of fun! Come and join in the fun:
