On this week’s #FeelgoodSaturday I was cast back to my primary school days, to a simpler time, where the highlight of my year was playing one of the inept cops in our production of Bugsy Malone! I had the weighty responsibility of filling the fake splurge gun with talcum powder (we couldn’t use actual splurge for obvious reasons). Talcum powder proved not much better, as if you use it in enough volume it compacts to form a pretty slippery surface. Who knew!?
Anyway, no such problem should affect this week’s guests, Jess and Suzanne from Shenfield Operatic Society, AKA Tallulah and Laughing Girl, in their production of Bugsy. They’ve got proper approved splurge.
Jess (Tallulah), Suzanne (Laughing girl) and me!
Listen back to my interview with them below – you’ll find the whole show here but they’re on from just after halfway through:
You can catch Bugsy Malone from Wednesday 26 to Saturday 29th June at the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch. Tickets are here: www.queens-theatre.co.uk
To keep up-to-date with all things Shenfield Operatic, their website is here. They’re also on all the social media:

Elsewhere in the show we had Entertainment News, chat about the Queen’s birthday honours and a plethora of happy music, as shown by the playlist below:
