CHELMSFORD YOUNG GEN PRESENTS

Alan Parker’s Bugsy Malone

Tuesday, 1st to Saturday, 5th November 2022

This November, the award-winning Chelmsford Young Gen will illuminate the stage once again with a musical famous for casting young actors in adult roles.

Set in 1929 New York, the city is divided by gang warfare. On one side, Dandy Dan’s mob terrorise, taking out those they turn against with their new splurge guns. On the other side, Fat Sam who runs the successful Grand Slam Speakeasy and enjoys the attention of his girlfriend, the seductive Tallulah.

Sam brings in Bugsy Malone, a smooth-talking man about town to defeat his rival, while Bugsy simultaneously attempts to woo Blousy Brown, the new singer in town. But things do not run smoothly….. In fact, they get very, VERY messy!!

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.

Welcome

Chelmsford Young Generation is a music and drama society (charity registered) for young people aged 8 to 18, established in 1968. Boys and girls work with professional directors to perform two shows each year at the Civic Theatre and the Cramphorn Theatre in Chelmsford.

The fact that Young Gen work with professional directors allied with the hard work and dedication from the young people on stage and the myriad of volunteers who help out with the many aspects of putting on a great show, from the wardrobe department through to the set builders and backstage crew, allows the society to produce performances of the highest calibre.

Being a member of Young Gen gives young people an extremely wide range of life skills. Working as part of a dedicated team of people of all ages from diverse backgrounds, gives the “Young Genners” a unique opportunity to grow in confidence on an individual basis as well as being part of a group that strives, not only to put on tremendous shows but to have fun and develop new skills while doing so.
