The show opens with two gangs of children squaring off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan’s gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the “splurge” gun, a weapon that shoots whipped cream. Now Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble. Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not so willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last chance that Fat Sam’s gang has of surviving.
The production features clean comedic fun for the entire family, said director Kelsee B. Hankins.
