Aquinas College put on a Musical Production bi-annually. They are always a highlight of the year for everyone involved. Students not only learn about the ins and outs of the theatre industry but gain so much personally in terms of confidence and new skills. Auditions are held at the end of each preceding year.
This pint-sized, pinstriped classic is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920’s.
Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Biao and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, Paul Williams. Bugsy Malone 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 hand since obtaining the “splurge” gun (a weapon that shoots whip 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.
Bugsy Malone is a master class in musical comedy. The libretto tosses the reader into uproarious laughter without even being staged. Imagine how delightful it is when it’s brought to life.
