23rd - 28th August
Prohibition era, New York. A city full of mobsters, showgirls and dreamers. Rival gangster bosses Fat Sam and Dandy Dan are at loggerheads. The custard pies are flying and Dandy Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the new-fangled "splurge" gun. Now Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble!
Enter Bugsy Malone, a penniless one-time boxer and all-round nice guy, thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last resort for Fat Sam's hapless hoodlums. Will Bugsy be able to resist seductive songstress Tallulah, Fat Sam’s moll, and his old flame, plus stay out of trouble long enough to help Fat Sam to defend his business…?
You can see Bugsy Malone at Mayflower Theatre, with eight shows being performed during its time in Southampton. Hop on one of our many buses, including the 6, 7, 11, and 18, to get to Southampton Central, a short walk away from the theatre. You can use the Journey Planner on our website or app to find your way to the theatre.
