Curve Announces Cast of BUGSY MALONE

Curve has announced a local cast of over 30 young performers and a home-grown orchestra for this year's Made at Curve Community Production, Bugsy Malone.

Up-and-coming local talent makes up the show's motley crew of gangsters and showgirls including Joel Fossard-Jones as Bugsy Malone, Maeve Woods as Blousey, Harvey Thorpe as Fat Sam, Alfie Bright as Dandy Dan, Muhammed Ibraheem as Roxy Robinson and Benjamin Cowan as Knuckles. Femme-fatale Tallulah will be played by Jennifer Brown.

Joel Fossard-Jones returns to Curve in the title-role following performances in previous Made at Curve productions including Adrian Mole in Sue Townshend's The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾ The Musical, The Artful Dodger in Oliver! and Kurt Von Trapp in The Sound of Music.

In a first for Curve, this year's production will also feature a community orchestra made entirely of local musicians. Musical director George Dyer will lead the orchestra with many of the participants performing in an on-stage production for the first time. The band will consist of sixteen musicians including local violinists, trombonists, saxophonists, guitar and a French horn.

The annual community productions provide an opportunity for people of all ages to work with Curve's professional production and technical teams. The shows are central to Curve's ongoing commitment to nurture, develop and celebrate local talent from across the region. Curve Associate Artist and choreographer for Legally Blonde and Grease, Nick Winston, will direct.

Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster said:

"The Curve Community Production is always a season highlight for us, combining the incredibly important work we create with our communities with our work on stage.

Alongside our splurge-tastically talented young actors and musicians, we are proud to welcome a professional, internationally-acclaimed production team, led by Curve Associate Artist Nick Winston. It's inspiring these young performers will have the opportunity to work with such an established and experienced team.
