One Act, Book Musical, Rated G
Broadway Junior Version
The pint-sized, pin-striped classic is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920s. (60 MINUTE VERSION FOR YOUNG PERFORMERS)
Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Baio
and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer
Muppet Movie, BUGSY MALONE is good, clean, comedic fun!
Two gangs, comprised completely of children, in a fictitious city,
comprised completely of children, are in a 1920's rivalry of Capone-ian
Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since getting their hands on
the "splurge" gun (a weapon that shoots whip cream). Now Fat Sam and his
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 busy really wants to do is spend
time with his new love Blousey; but that just isn't in the cards for our
BUGSY MALONE JR. includes a
chorus which may be expanded to include as many performers as desired by
adding as many members to Dandy Danís and Fat Samís gangs as your stage
can accommodate. The Grand Slam Girls can also be expanded to
incorporate more singing and dancing girls!
BUGSY MALONE is only available to license in the United States and Canada.
