DRAMA teachers Jenny Unwin and Sian Pearson at Shiplake College gave pupils in Year 7 to 9 a taste of New York in the Twenties when they showed Alan Parker’s ever popular Bugsy Malone film.
They dressed as gangsters from the prohibition era, armed themselves with custard pies and encouraged the boys to put themselves forward for the casting process ahead of the college undertaking their own version of the play.
Performances will take place in the College’s Tithe Barn Theatre from January 15 to 18, commencing at 7.30pm.
There will also be a matinee performance, exclusively for local schools, at 2.30pm on Wednesday January 15.
Proceeds from the show will go to Launchpad, Reading’s homeless support charity, and Gap-Africa, a charity which supports communities in Africa.
