RENOWNED performing arts high school, St John Fisher, acted out a successful rendition of the classic gangster story, Bugsy Malone.

More than 160 pupils from all years were involved in shows over four evenings and two daytime performances.

Headteacher Richard Ward said: “The students showed just how talented they are. Many parents came up to me to say how much they enjoyed it.

“This is only achieved with commitment and dedication and I appreciate the work of the Performing Arts departments in producing such a spectacular event.”

The lead character of Bugsy was played by Jake Glynn and George Gaskell. Blousey Brown was played by Lucy Giddings and Georgina Barn. Tallulah was played by Zoe Hughes and Cara Fitzpatrick and Fat Sam was played by Isaac Lee.

Head of Performing Arts Rob Walters said: “Bugsy Malone created a fantastic opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent at our Performing Arts College.

“Pupils rose to the challenge of a four week schedule which involved rehearsing evening and weekends.

“A double cast involved more than 160 pupils as musicians, actors, dancers and technicians performing to more than 1,500 members of the school and wider community.”
