Bugsy set to wow audiences

26th February 2013

A toe tapping score and comedy script look to be the ingredients for another highly successful musical production at the Chatham and Clarendon School Federation.

Set in 1920s New York, Bugsy Malone tells the story of a world of splurge-gun toting gangsters, show girls and dreamers.

Dandy Dan (Gavin Ward) and Fat Sam (Craig Alder) do battle for control and for better or worse the tide of war in the streets of the city begins to turn.

As rehearsals near an end and opening night gets ever closer the show promises to leave audiences entertained and wanting more.

Jacob Gardner as Bugsy, the fast-talking hustler caught in the middle of a mob war, leads a talented and enthusiastic cast from across the school in their adaptation of Alan Parker’s film. The chanteuse of the speakeasy, Tallulah, with her sassiness and attitude, portrayed by Johanna Pearson Farr and Blousey – the dreamer who is trying to find her feet (Lydia Crosher) bring a touch of feminine charm to the male dominated world of the the musical.

The set pieces and big production numbers will no doubt be dazzling with magnificent vocal harmonies from a gifted company. Clear delivery and projection of the dialogue guarantee that all will feel part of the action.

If previous Chatham and Clarendon productions and rehearsals are anything to go by then Bugsy looks set to wow audiences.

The show runs from Thursday March 7th to Saturday March 9th. For more information and ticket sales log on to: http://www.ccgrammarschool.co.uk/
