Please bring a list of all conflicts from June through early August 2016.
Please contact them to peruse a copy of the script beforehand.
Based on the hit 1976 film starring a pre-teen Scott Baio and Jodie Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, BUGSY MALONE JUNIOR is good, clean, comedic fun! Two gangs comprised completely of children, square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan’s gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the “splurge” gun, a weapon that shoots whipped 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.
