A STUNNING musical theatre production starring youngsters from Passmores Academy had the audience up on their feet three nights running when the school presented its end of year show, ‘Bugsy Malone’.

A pastiche of early American gangster films, ‘Bugsy Malone’ parodies the world of mobster rule in 1920’s New York City during Prohibition. Gangland boss, Fat Sam and his half-witted henchmen battle to save his business empire from archenemy and interloper, Dandy Dan. Bugsy, a chancer and would-be boxing promoter, is the accidental hero whose quick wit, charm and ingenuity culminates with him saving Fat Sam’s business, while simultaneously winning the heart of the woman of his dreams.

The show ran for three nights and wowed audiences with gorgeous costumes, beautifully choreographed dance sequences and breath-taking performances from the talented cast. Combined with professional lighting effects and a live jazz band, the production was as sharp and sassy as it was spellbinding and uplifting.

Audience member, Michaela Midwinter said: ‘Honestly, I would have paid West End prices for that. What an outstanding performance’. Another fan of the show, Sandra Winn said: ‘The hard work that was put in to give us all a wonderful evening is much appreciated – thank you to all the teachers and those lovely talented children for making that possible’.
