Broadway Junior Version
The pint-sized, pin-striped classic is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920's. (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 of The
Muppet Movie, Bugsy
Malone JR. is good, clean, comedic fun!
Two gangs comprised completely of children, square off in a 1920's
rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan's gang has gotten the upper
obtaining the "splurge" gun (a weapon that shoots whip cream). Now
Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a
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.
Bugsy Malone JR. includes a chorus, which may be expanded by adding
as many members to Dandy Dan’s and Fat Sam’s gangs as your stage can
Grand Slam Girls can also be expanded to incorporate more singing
and dancing girls!
Bugsy Malone JR. is only available to license in the United States and Canada.

Originally approached by legendary author/director George Abbott to pen the score for The Pajama Game, Frank Loesser turned it down, but recommended his two protégés Richard Adler and Jerry Ross for the job.
