Bugsy Malone

Gangster Warfare in New York City!

The acclaimed Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre returns to the Main Stage with a dazzling production of the timeless classic Bugsy Malone.

Bugsy Malone follows the rivalry of two half-witted gangs, headed by Fat Sam and Dandy Dan.

As the chaos ensues, can Bugsy keep a cool head and help restore order on the streets and save his friend’s livelihood?

Following the recent successes of The Wizard of Oz and Oliver! and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre is tremendously excited to bring Alan Parker’s 1976 timeless musical to the main stage.
