“Suddenly Everyone Wants to be in Showbusiness” Bugsy Malone at Downlands

There were splurge guns, there was fabulous music, there were corny jokes, there was sensational singing and dancing and there was romance!  All 160 students who were involved in the 2020 drama production of Bugsy Malone were superb.  Auditions began back in October and the students have been rehearsing ever since.  There were two casts who performed at alternate performances from Wednesday night through to the matinee on Saturday.  From the stage set and orchestra to the costumes, lighting and sound, students have been involved every step of the way and the team effort certainly paid off; it was a joy to watch and lovely to see the students so engaged in such a great production.  Special thanks go to Mrs Robertson, our talented Head of Drama, Mrs Green, Mr Smith, Mr Wardrobe, Miss Lincoln, Ms Hollingdale, Mr Walker, Mr Matthews, Mrs Cooper, Mrs Moss and Miss Yazdi.
