Bugsy Malone (Collins Drama) contains a stimulating playscript suitable for classwork and school production, accompanied by resources including background material and lively activities.
Students will relish this opportunity to play a cast of Prohibition-era mobsters.
Fat Sam, who runs one of the most popular speakeasies in town, is in danger of being closed down by his ‘business rival’ Dandy Dan. 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.
This play lends itself perfectly to school performance with its large mixed cast and consistent humour.
