No Square Theatre announces Bugsy Malone casting call for actor’s ages 6-18

Auditions will begin at No Square Theatre on Saturday, April 27 for Bugsy Malone, the pint-sized, pinstriped, tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the roaring twenties. Singers, actors, dancers, and tappers ages 6-18 are welcome to audition. 

Music and lyrics are by Paul Williams, based on a book by Alan Parker. A slapstick musical comedy, it spoofs the story of legendary gangster Bugsy Malone. The show was created to be cast entirely with young people. Now-famous Catherine Zeta-Jones played the lead role of Tallulah in a professional production of Bugsy Malone in England when she was 14. 

The No Square production will be directed by Ella Wyatt, with music direction by Susan Thoren and choreography by Rylee Bullington. As with all No Square shows, costumes will be designed by the amazing Brigitte Harper. 

Auditions are by appointment only. To make an appointment and for complete information on how to audition, what to prepare, required forms, and a complete character breakdown, visit
