IT’S 1920, and the rivalry between Fat Sam Stacetto and Dandy Dan has never been more rife.

With Dan getting his hands on the new Splurge Gun, it seems he has the upper hand.

Well that’s the setting for Knutsford Little Theatre Juniors’ next production, the ever popular classic Bugsy Malone.

The show tells the story of former boxer Bugsy Malone, played by Harvey Watson, and the many twists and turns his life takes as he tries to win the heart of promising performer Blousey Brown.

Whilst this is going on, he gets involved in the gang war situation between Fat Sam, played by Josh McClenaghan, and Dandy Dan, played by Alex Braddock.

Dan and his Gang are gaining the upper hand using the latest technology, the “Splurge Gun”, which fires a high-powered stream of Custard Foam (known in the business as Splurge), a weapon much more advanced than Sam’s Custard Pies.

Throw in Fat Sam’s flirtatious better half Tallulah, played by Bo Bragason, and the not-so-smart Leroy Smith, played by Evan Johnson, and audiences are in for a performance full of laughter, great music, and undoubtedly plenty of mess when the final confrontation occurs between both gangs.

With a cast of 29 talented young people, director Ben Evans-Clarke has had his hands full, but he says that with such a strong production team behind him, including some of the juniors taking production roles (Holly Whitbread as choreographer and Josh McClenaghan as junior assistant director), the show is sure to be a resounding success, with a higher level of production than seen before with the theatre’s junior shows.

Bugsy Malone runs from tonight, Thursday, July 20 and 22 July, starting at 7pm all evenings and a Saturday Matinee at 1pm Tickets are selling fast with some performances already sold out.
