Wow! What more can I say than fab-u-lous! With our all student cast and wonderfully talented band, Bugsy Malone was everything that it promised to be – and more. I had the pleasure of being backstage with the cast for the first performance on Tuesday evening and I was so impressed by the high level of professionalism that the students showed; they knew their cues, which props they needed and were word-perfect. Even faced with the unknown high volumes of splurge plastered across dresses and jackets, everyone took it in their stride – and Debs was very well prepped with several reams of kitchen-towel! A sneaky peek, front of stage, at the final scene was a moment I will remember for years to come. Seeing the pride and elation on the students’ faces, singing ‘You Give a Little Love’ whilst slipping and sliding through splurge was utterly hilarious and a joy to witness – the jubilation backstage afterwards was infectious.
