Pupils shine in musical favourite Bugsy Malone

Children from St Benedict's Primary School, Handforth, provided a rousing end to the school year with their fantastic production of the musical 'Bugsy Malone'. Pupils dressed as hoods and showgirls mingled with parents attired in twenties style outfits to tell the story of Bugsy, Tallulah, Fat Sam and Dandy Dan.

Mrs Gornell, headteacher, praised the hard work and dedication of all involved. "This has been a wonderful performance from the pupils, made possible by Mrs Thomason as musical director and Mrs Muldoon as producer, as well as the talents and sheer enthusiasm of all the pupils."

The production ran over two nights and was attended by over 200 parents, relatives and friends of the school. The school hall was made up to look like a twenties-era 'speakeasy' and judging from the audiences' flapper dresses, headdresses and spats, everyone really got into the spirit of the production.

I have loved Bugsy Malone since seeing Alan Parker's film as a child. How wonderful to see parents joining in and dressing up along with their children and the school - a real sense of community!

This was amazing to watch, the children's performances were spectacular and the atmosphere was great. Parents and teachers got in the spirit and dressed up, what a wonderful community to be part of.
