SCHOOL YEARS: Reception-Year 2
SUMMER PRODUCTION: BUGSY MALONE
MONDAY 15 – SATURDAY 27 AUGUST
Join us for two weeks of fantastic fun putting on a production of the iconic musical Bugsy Malone!
It is 1929 in New York and the city is divided by two rival gangs. On one side, Dandy Dan’s mob terrorise the district, taking out those they turn against with their new splurge guns. On the other side, Dandy Dan’s rival, Fat Sam, runs his successful Grand Slam Speakeasy. Put in the mix serious sassiness, broken hearts, custard pies, and some stonking show tunes and you have all the ingredients for this summer’s blockbuster at The Garage.
So dust off your splurge guns and pull up a seat at the Grand Slam Speakeasy for two-weeks of custard-fueled fun. The creative team can’t wait to start work on this full-scale production. You won’t want to miss this, so sign up early.
