The first rehearsal and script read-through for the junior production of ‘Bugsy Malone’ took place recently at Christ’s Hospital School Theatre.
With the dust having barely settled on the stage after the successful ‘in-the-round’ senior production of ‘The Crucible’, the drama department at CH was inundated last term with over 200 young pupils wanting to audition for ‘Bugsy Malone’.
During the auditions for the show, the pupils sang, acted and danced to impress directors Caroline Kelley and Zoe Munday. They were certainly put through their paces and with call back auditions, 40 or so groups were seen by the directors.
With such a wealth of talent to choose from, this promises to be an exciting junior production which will be held in the CH theatre on 21, 22 and 23 June.
