Play description:
Two gangs in a fictitious city (not unlike 1920’s Chicago) populated only by children are in a rivalry of Capone-ian standards. Dandy Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since acquiring the "splurge" gun (a weapon that shoots whip cream). Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is thrust into the limelight when he becomes the last chance Fat Sam's gang has of surviving. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love, Blousey.

Bugsy Malone
Bugsy Malone is the hero of our story. This role is equal parts Jimmy Stewart, James Bond and Gene Kelly. Bugsy alternates as the narrator and the star of the show. We are looking for a young performer comfortable in front of an audience, who radiates a sense of charm and sincerity as well as a street-wise sensibility. 
Gender: male
Vocal range top: D5
Vocal range bottom: C#4

Blousey Brown
Blousey is at first the typical young, wide-eyed, would-be star, just off the bus from a small town. However, we find out that Blousey is a force to be reckoned with and certainly nobody's fool. A great singer and wonderful comedic actress is ideal for this role
Gender: female
Vocal range top: D5
Vocal range bottom: E4

Fat Sam
Fat Sam is the baddest of the bad guys whose biggest rival is Dandy Dan. Fat Sam should be an adept physical comedian with a commanding stage presence. A terrific singer who can command the stage is in order.

Gender: male
Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: G4

Tallulah is the classic gangster's moll. We are looking for a strong singer who can deliver the role with deadpan sincerity and droll appeal. Tallulah is a Mae West type with a talent for performing. 
Gender: female
Vocal range top: B4
Vocal range bottom: B3

Dandy Dan
Dandy Dan is the unflappably stylish, debonair underworld businessman who outwits Fat Sam every step of the way. 
Gender: male
Vocal range top: C#5
Vocal range bottom: G3

Fizzy is an employee of Fat Sam’s at the Grand Slam, whose duties involve cleaning up the place. This performer needs to deliver his song beautifully with sad-eyed hopes and dreams as he sweeps up.
Gender: male
Vocal range top: D5
Vocal range bottom: C4

Lena Marelli
Lena Marelli is the star of the Lena Marelli Show!, and she lets everyone know it. We are looking for a performer who can TAKE OVER THE STAGE with a strong singing voice. An affected character voice is practically a requirement to deliver this role. Lena is not very bright, but she is very loud. Think Lina Lamont from Singin' In The Rain.
Gender: female
Vocal range top: F5
Vocal range bottom: A4

Fat Sam's Gang
Fat Sam's Gang includes Roxy Robinson, Angelo, Snake Eyes, Ritzy, Shake Down Louis, and Sam's right hand man, Knuckles. These fellows are bumbling, funny, non-threatening hoodlums. 
Gender: both
Vocal range top: D5
Vocal range bottom: C4

Dandy Dan's Gang
Dandy's gang members are really bad guys. Also known as The Hoods, they sing a little, but they splurge a lot! They are suave-looking types who can pull off slicked-back hair and double-breasted suits. The Hoods include: Bronx Charlie, Benny Lee, Yonkers, Laughing Boy and Doodle. 
Gender: both
Vocal range top: D5
Vocal range bottom: G3

Tallulah's Girls
The Tallulah’s Girls perform at the speakeasy, and they include Tillie, Loretta, Dotty and Bangles. These girls should be very at home singing and dancing and should work well as ensemble singers. They are basically Tallulah’s gang! 
Gender: female
Vocal range top: D5
Vocal range bottom: B3

Ensemble roles will be double cast from Fat Sam’s Gang, Dandy Dan’s Gang and Tallulah’s Girls
