A THEATRE company is celebrating its diamond anniversary with a sparkling production of Bugsy Malone.
The Gravesend and District Theatre Guild presents the wild and wacky musical at their theatre in Vale Road, Northfleet and the Woodville Halls.
Some 50 youngsters are involved in the production, running from next Thursday to Saturday, March 15.
The show, like the film, is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the 1920's gangster flick where matters are settled with 'splurge guns'.
It seems Fat Sam runs one of the most popular clubs in town, and he's in danger of being closed down by his business rival Dandy Dan.
Enter baby-faced Bugsy Malone, a killer with the ladies and a definite asset to Fat Sam.
Unfortunately, Bugsy has also caught the eye of Sam's girlfriend, Tallulah, though he's set his designs on show-girl Blousey Brown.
The cast includes Alex Walker as Bugsy, Daisy Martin as Blousey, Bronte Tadman as Talullah, John Siggers as Fat Same and Alex West as Dandy Dan.
The run includes a matinee on Saturday, March 15 at 2.30pm at the Woodville Halls and a preview performance for schools on Wednesday, March 12. All tickets are £5 and available from the Guild Box Office on 01474 360315 and Woodville Halls on 01474 337774.
