  • Bugsy Malone Production

    Published 17/06/24

    The Thomas Clarkson Academy Expressive Arts department is thrilled to announce the general release of tickets for this year's Whole School Production, Bugsy Malone. 
    This fun-filled 1920s inspired story follows city-slicker Bugsy Malone as he tries to navigate the gangster-filled streets of 1920s New York and escape to Hollywood with the new-found love of his life, Blousey Brown. Unfortunately, he gets caught in the middle of a turf war between mobsters Fat Sam Stacetto and Dandy Dan. Will this new love blossom? Can he avoid getting splurged? And who gave all these kids splurge guns? The answer to all these questions and more is just a ticket away! 
    Performances will begin at 19:00 on 10th, 11th and 12th July 2024, and will take place at Thomas Clarkson Academy in our Theatre. The show should run for approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes (including a 15-minute intermission). Tickets cost £6 each, and details of how to purchase them can be found below. There is free parking available on-site, and entrance will be via the canteen (not the school office), which is located next to the sports pitches.
