BIG INTERVIEW Jan Ravens: 'If you become part of the establishment then you lose your edge'

Have your say

Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre’s first summer youth project came to a grand finale with its production of the classic musical, Bugsy Malone.

A talented cast of 230 young people took to the stage and the result of 12 days hard work was a polished performance that amazed the audience.

The cast was led by Chance Perdomo in the role of Bugsy. Perdomo played his part in a realistic manner, relaxing into the part and easing the audience from his first monologue.

Perdomo’s co-stars were equally strong, with Chloe Rice commanding the audience’s attention whenever she was on stage as Tallulah, with her strong singing voice and well-thought-out character.

The principal cast were supported by the show’s chorus, comprising many talented young actors. From 10-year-old Demi Tallulah-Scott to college student Lauren White, over 150 chorus members brought the show to life by singing and dancing with incredible levels of passion and enthusiasm.
