Big Blockbuster family musical this Summer

Cast announced for Bugsy Malone at Birmingham Rep

Birmingham Rep, the city’s only major producing theatre, has today announced casting for the blockbuster family musical, Bugsy Malone which runs at the venue from 27 Jul – 14 Aug 2022.

The production is a fully professional revival of London’s Lyric Hammersmith Theatre’s universally acclaimed, sell-out show. It is produced by Theatre Royal Bath Productions, Birmingham Rep and Kenny Wax.

The world-famous musical, Bugsy Malone is based on the hit 1976 movie by Alan Parker who’s long catalogue of films have won nineteen BAFTA® awards, ten Golden Globes® and six Oscars®. Packed with instantly recognisable songs from Oscar®-winner Paul Williams including My Name is Tallulah, You Give A Little Love and Fat Sam’s Grand Slam, Bugsy Malone is a masterclass of musical comedy with one of the most joyously uplifting finales in musical theatre.

The 1976 movie Bugsy Malone launched the careers of Jodie Foster and Scott Baio. It received eight BAFTA® nominations and three Golden Globe® nominations including Best Motion Picture for a Musical.

A cast of young performers

Bugsy Malone stars a talented cast of young performers, aged between 9 and 15.  Three young casts of seven will perform the lead roles in rotation. They are joined by adult ensemble members.

This will be the first ever professional production of Bugsy Malone to tour the U.K. and star a young company of thirty nine actors (including three teams of seven kids).
