Gangster day

SHOPPERS found themselves in the middle of an American gangster-style scene as students caused a stir in a store as a taster of their next production.

Pupils from Trinity Academy in Thorne showed a glimpse of their version of Bugsy Malone in the town’s Sainsbury’s in King Street.

The cast, which boasts more than 40 students, are in the middle of their run at the Church Balk academy.

Bugsy Malone was a 1976 musical film which cast only child actors and was loosely based on the exploits of American gangsters during the Prohibition era.

The show continues until tomorrow. Tickets are £5 for adults, £3 concessions. Family tickets are available. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. For more call the academy on 01405 813000.
