EAC Intermediate Children’s Theatre to perform Bugsy Malone

By Tamara Gerleve

THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Intermediate Children’s Theatre group has been busy practicing and is ready to present four performances of the musical version of Bugsy Malone, which will feature a cast of actors between the ages of 11 and 14.

Bugsy Malone will be performed February 27, 28, and 29, & March 1, 2008 in the Gherald L. Hoopes Jr. Activities Center-Lee Little Theatre, beginning at 7:30 p.m. each night.

“The play is done in Broadway style with lots of singing and dancing,” explains Penny Whetten, the play’s director. “This is a gangster movie where all the gangsters are children. Instead of real bullets they use ‘splurge guns’ that cover the victim in cream,” said Whetten.

Cost of admission is $3 per person and tickets are available weekdays at the EAC Ticket Office from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., or can be reserved by calling 428-8228 during the same hours. Tickets will also be available at the door.
