2016 Production // 26 September to 5 November 2016
Head back to the gangster days of the roaring 20’s – New York 1929. A slapstick musical comedy, Bugsy Malone follows the rivalry between two half- witted street gangs and the washed up, well-intentioned one-time boxer-Bugsy.
The message is one of good, clean fun; the characters are wonderful carton cutouts; and the weapons of choice are ‘splurge’, flour bombs and custard pies. This gangster musical satire brings together the chaos of the custard pies, the search for Hollywood stardom and the quest for a storybook ending.
Bugsy Malone by Paul Williams is a story of children, parents and grandparents with a strong message that no one wins when they won’t work together. Fun for all the family!
Bugsy Malone is presented by arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty LTD, Exclusive agent for Music Theatre International, NY.
