Bugsy Malone

Presented by The White Rock Summer Youth Project

White Rock Theatre, Hastings

Thu 11 - Sat 13 August 2022

WR: Bugsy Malone (11-13 Aug 2022)

The White Rock Theatre Summer Youth Project returns in 2022 for its 19th production, back on the main stage with the unmissable production - Bugsy Malone .

Based on the hit 1976 film and featuring a catchy, swinging score - Bugsy Malone is good, clean, fun and a masterclass in musical comedy. 

It is 1929 in New York and 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 that Fat Sam's gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love, Blousey, but that just isn't on the cards for our hero.

In a final splurge gun and custard pie showdown, one hundred of Hastings and the surrounding area’s most talented young people aged 8-18 will ensure that this production is a sure-fire family treat!

The Summer Youth Project is back on the White Rock Theatre main stage after having to scale down the cast and production last year due to national restrictions. They still put on seven sold-out shows of Matilda the Musical JR in the Sussex Studio to wide acclaim.

“From the casting to the choreography and costumes, the show helped to display the incredible talent that Hastings and more specifically the White Rock Theatre summer youth group has to offer.”
Ben Cornwell, Hastings Independent Press, reviewing Matilda the Musical JR in 2021 

Don’t miss their grand return to the big stage. There’s room for everybody to come and join the fun at Fat Sam’s Grand Slam!
