Why you dirty rat – Carihi stages Bugsy Malone

Students at Carihi have been hard at work on this year’s Musical Production of Bugsy Malone, a musical comedy set in the 1920’s, spoofing the old gangster films of the times

Students at Carihi have been hard at work on this year’s Musical Production of Bugsy Malone, a musical comedy set in the 1920’s, spoofing the old gangster films of the times.

Instead of machine guns, there are splurge guns that shoot silly string.  Instead of hand guns, there are pies in the face.  And on top of all that there is great music and a love story.

The students are looking forward to opening night.

“It is a lot of work, but it’s completely worth it in the end” says Jillian Legare, who plays “Knuckles” in the musical.

Director Bill Young is pleased with how the students respond to the pressure.

“They are really stepping up and working hard. It’s going to be a great show.”

The show runs from May 12-15 on the Carihi stage.  Curtains open at 7 p.m. and doors open at 6:30. There are matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the Carihi office for $10 each, or at the door.
