Bugsy Malone – Sterts Theatre Company at 7.30 pm
Dandy Dan’s hoodlums terrorise the district, exterminating undesirables with their new weapon –splurge guns! His rival is Fat Sam Stacetto, who runs the Grand Slam Speakeasy, but Fat Sam’s gang still use old-fashioned pies. Fat Sam engages the help of Bugsy Malone, a smooth city slicker and boxing scout.
Bugsy however is currently occupied in sweet-talking would-be singer Blousey Brown, much to the disapproval of Tallulah, Fat Sam’s girl, who has history with Bugsy!
Fat Sam escapes from a frame-up but he learns later that Dandy Dan’s mob have splurged nearly all his gang and destroyed his empire. There’s only one hope left. Fat Sam pays Bugsy for more help, but this means breaking a promise with Blousey. Bugsy engages help and this all leads to a showdown at Fat Sam’s speakeasy. Splurge, custard pies, flour bombs… Out of the gooey pandemonium love and peace are eventually restored.
