The critically acclaimed revival of the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre’s Olivier Award-nominated production of BUGSY MALONE THE MUSICAL, currently touring the UK, has today announced a strictly limited London Christmas season at Alexandra Palace from 3 December 2022 to 15 January 2023.
BUGSY MALONE THE MUSICAL is written by Alan Parker with music and words by Paul Williams. The production is directed by Sean Holmes and choreographed by Drew McOnie, and features a talented cast of young performers aged between 9 and 16 in the leading roles, supported by an ensemble of adult performers.
The combined company of thirty-nine actors (including three teams of seven kids) are joined by a live band of seven musicians. The touring company will also perform at Alexandra Palace.
Welcome to New York 1929! A city full of mobsters, showgirls and dreamers. Rival gangster bosses Fat Sam and Dandy Dan are at loggerheads. The custard pies are flying and the new-fangled “splurge” gun is causing mayhem.
Enter Bugsy Malone, a penniless one-time boxer and all-round nice guy. All he wants is to spend time with his new love, Blousey, but can he resist seductive songstress Tallulah and stay out of trouble long enough to help Fat Sam defend his business…?
Packed with instantly recognisable songs from Oscar®-winner Paul Williams including My Name is Tallulah, You Give A Little Love and Fat Sam’s Grand Slam, this fun-filled and riotous musical comedy offers the perfect festive treat for all the family.
Directed by Olivier Award-winning Sean Holmes and choreographed by Olivier Award-winning Drew McOnie, BUGSY MALONE THE MUSICAL is designed by multi award-winning international stage designer Jon Bausor, with Phil Bateman (Musical Supervisor, Arranger and Orchestrator), Phil Gladwell (Lighting Designer), Ben Harrison (Sound Designer), Franny-Anne Rafferty (Associate Director), Leanne Pinder (Associate Choreographer), Verity Noughton (Casting Director for the unders), Will Burton (Casting Director for the overs) and Susannah Peretz (Wig Designer).
