YOUNG thespians at Amery Hill School wowed their audiences toward the end of last term with their latest whole-school drama production of musical comedy Bugsy Malone.

Set in New York and based on the 1976 American-British film featured only child actors, and has become a ‘must do’ for school production teams.

Staged over four nights, the Amery Hill production was a sellout, with the cast playing to a full house every time.

According to a school spokesman, live music, performed by students and led by musical director Ms Worwood, complemented brilliant performances from an enthusiastic cast, made up from students in all year groups.

“Fat Sam and Dandy Dan’s conflict brought many a splurge-gun ending to a number of vibrant characters throughout the comic and energetic show,” the spokesman added.

Mr Gibbs, head of drama and production director, said: “This show has been an absolute joy to direct and put together. With such a talented and committed group of students, the characters have really been brought to life with some outstanding vocal and acting performances.”
