YOUNG performers are set to stage a sell-out production of a New York-based gangster musical this week.
Pupils from St Edward’s School, in Woodstock Road, will take centre stage during their performances of Bugsy Malone at the North Walls Art Centre, South Parade.
Almost 80 students, aged between 13 and 15, have been working on the 10-week project during term time.
Year 10 pupil Spencer Gomes is playing the role of gangster Fat Sam.
The 15-year-old said: “I think it’s really good.
“The most challenging thing has probably been the amount of commitment because we are still at school most of the time.
“The overall experience of the acting and everything is quite good fun.”
Performances will take place today and tomorrow from 8pm.
Musical director Alex Tster said: “It’s the end of our year. We just wanted to put something on that was lovely, energetic and enthusiastic for the kids.”
