Bugsy Malone, presented by Phoenix Theatre, is perfectly timed to coincide with school holidays and would make a great holiday treat for families. It features an enthusiastic cast of kids whose joy of performing is contagious.
Shining in the title role is Connor Gosatti who has the skills to carry a show, a perfect Bronx accent and more charm than a young Scott Baio.
Ashley Garner, a little slim for Fat Sam, handles the gangster role beautifully and is a standout performer.
