Edalene Theatre, Wolfville. We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting BUGSY MALONE this summer! Based on the 1970’s movie of the same name,  Bugsy Malone is about two gangs comprised completely of children in New York City. The show sees them square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan’s gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the “splurge” gun. Now, Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last chance that Fat Sam’s gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love, Blousey, but that just isn’t in the cards for our hero.

We are pleased to be welcoming back Lisa St Clair as musical director!

Camp will be offered for students 10-18 and run for three weeks in August (August 6th-24), from Monday-Friday. During this camp the students will be trained in dance, music and theatre technique while rehearsing for a full scale musical production.

 Auditions will be in May. All who audition will be accepted, auditions help us to find the best part to showcase you. However, if you would like to come to camp and be part of the chorus, no audition is required, just fill out a registration form.
