REVIEW: Bugsy Malone at the Theatre Royal Windsor

This is a local youth amateur production from RARE PRODUCTIONS, the team that brought Fame, Peter Pan and The Wizard of Oz to Windsor.

The show started with a classic gangster warfare shootout set in the back alleys of New York.

Dandy Dan’s gang terrorise the district, exterminating undesirables such as Roxy Robinson with their new weapon splurge guns armed with silly string and fired with glee at anyone in their path.

His rival is Fat Sam Stacetto, who runs the Grand Slam Speakeasy, but Fat Sam’s gang still use old fashioned pies.

A talented trio of girls welcome us to the speakeasy followed by a delightful dance troupe. 

The live music on stage helps set the scene.

Fat Sam then entices Bugsy Malone, a smooth city slicker who hitherto has been more occupied in sweet talking Blousey Brown, a would-be female singer.

Finally, Dandy Dan prepares for a showdown at Fat Sam’s speakeasy. It all ends in a gooey pandemonium of splurge, custard pies and flour bombs in the laundry. 

Will Dandy Dan get his just desserts? Will Bugsy and Blousey have a sweet ending?

Either way there are plenty of high kicks and classic tunes to keep you entertained. Come to downtown Windsor and look out for the comic police duo!
