Its 1929 New York City, Dandy Dan’s hoodlums terrorise the district, exterminating undesirables with their new weapon – splurge guns. His rival is Fat Sam Stacetto, but Fat Sam’s gang still use old-fashioned pies. Bugsy Malone is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight, when he becomes the last chance Fat Sam’s gang has of surviving.

Great songs, amazing dances, flashing lights and splurge-gun fights – what more would you want from a musical?
