Birmingham Youth Theatre's next show, Bugsy Malone, is based on the hit 1976 film starring a pre-teen Scott Baio and Jodi Foster. The show is guaranteed to be good, clean, comedic fun!
Two gangs square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the "splurge" gun (a weapon that shoots whipped cream). Now Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble. Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight, when he becomes the last chance Fat Sam's gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love Blousey; but that just isn't in the cards for our hero.
