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.
