New York is in the shadow of the great depression, and mob boss Fat Sam is under threat from his new rival Dandy Dan and her gang of hoodlums. As custard pies fly and Dan’s destructive ‘splurge guns’ wreak havoc, Bugsy Malone, a penniless ex-boxer and all round nice guy, falls in love with Blousey Brown, an aspiring singer. Will Bugsy be able to resist seductive songstress Tallulah and stay out of trouble while helping to defend Fat Sam’s business?

Royal & Derngate’s Youth Theatre and Young Company delve into the jazz age to explore the thrilling, dark and dangerous 1920s American prohibition era.

Directed by Ashley Elbourne (The Blue Road, Fame Jr., The Musicians) this fun-filled family musical is packed with well-known songs and will feature Northampton’s brightest up and coming young talent. So, Give A Little Love and join us at Fat Sam’s speakeasy.
