Opening Night Praise For Under-18s’ Production Of Bugsy Malone

There were cheers and appreciative applause from the audience as the curtain came down on Shaftesbury Arts Centre’s youth production of Bugsy Malone last night.

The show is a sell out this weekend and next. All the onstage and behind-the-scenes roles have been taken by under 18-year-olds.

Alfred’s Mary Drury attended the opening night and spoke with the cast. She started by asking how the group had pulled off such an impressive production.
