Cromer Academy staged a very impressive Bugsy Malone production last night. The students put in Months of hard work leading up to opening night and it showed in a polished performance.
Bugsy Malone is based on a 1976 British musical gangster film, directed by Alan Parker and features only child actors. Set in New York, the film highlights events from the early 1920s to 1931 during Prohibition
Choreography was slick and the costumes lit up the school hall with an array of colour. All the students were on form and it was evident the rehearsals had paid off.
English and drama teacher, Carl Hensley, was overjoyed with the result and said the show surpassed all expectations.
The storyline concentrates on the exploits of real-life gangsters like Al Capone and Bugs Moran, as dramatized in cinema.
Headmaster Geoff Baker praised the students and expressed how proud he was of their achievements.
Unsurprisingly the show was sold out and the audience sang along to familiar tunes. The finale received rapturous applause.
Teachers were dressed of the era to add to the wonderful atmosphere. Delicious tea and cake was served by local charity, About with Friends.
