Bugsy Malone, the 1976 musical film, is very loosely based on events in Chicago, Illinois in the Prohibition era, specifically, the exploits of gangsters like Al Capone as dramatized in cinema. The movie stars children as the gangsters and their molls, most notably a young Jodie Foster as Tallulah, and Scott Baio in the title role. The plot concerns the manufacture of a brand of custard, which is used first in cream-topped pies then later in 'splurge guns'. This songbook contains a background to the making of the film, over 40 photographs and a brief synopsis to the story.

Get your students to be gansters in this great play which has been specially adapted for schools from the popular film and it even includes still photographs. So join all the characters: Bugsy, Fat Sam, Tallulah and Dandy Dan for great fun with the whole class. Students will relish this opportunity to play a cast of Prohibition-era mobsters. Fat Sam, who runs one of the most popular speakeasies in town, is in danger of being closed down by his 'business rival' Dandy Dan. Enter baby-faced Bugsy Malone, a killer with the ladies and a definite asset to Fat Sam. Unfortunately, Bugsy has also caught the eye of Sam's girlfriend Tallulah - though he's set his designs on the showgirl Blousey Brown. This play lends itself perfectly to school performance with its large mixed cast and consistent humour. The book contains a stimulating playscript suitable for classwork and school production, accompanied by resources including background material and lively activities.

By the Tony Award-winning authors of Falsettos, here is an energetic, sardonic, often comical musical about a composer during a medical emergency. Gordon collapses into his lunch and awakes in the hospital, surrounded by his maritime-enthusiast lover, his mother, a co-worker, the doctor, and the nurses. Reluctantly, he had been composing a song for a children's television show that features a frog - Mr. Bungee - and the specter of this large green character and the unfinished work haunts him throughout his medical ordeal. What was thought to be a tumor turns out to be something more operable, and Gordon recovers, grateful for a chance to compose the songs he yearns to produce.

On Sunday April 27, 2003, 27-year old Aron Ralston set off for a day's hiking in the Utah canyons. Dressed in a t-shirt and shorts, Ralston, a seasoned climber, figured he'd hike for a few hours and then head off to work. 40 miles from the nearest paved road, he found himself on top of an 800-pound boulder. As he slid down and off of the boulder it shifted, trapping his right hand against the canyon wall. No one knew where he was; he had little water; he wasn't dressed correctly; and the boulder wasn't going anywhere. He remained trapped for five days in the canyon: hypothermic at night, de-hydrated and hallucinating by day. Finally, he faced the most terrible decision of his life: braking the bones in his wrist by snapping them against the boulder, he hacked through the skin, and finally succeeded in amputating his right hand and wrist. The ordeal, however, was only beginning. He still faced a 60-foot rappell to freedom, and a walk of several hours back to his car - along the way, he miraculously met a family of hikers, and with his arms tourniqued, and blood-loss almost critical, they heard above them the whir of helicopter blades; just in time, Aron was rescued and rushed to hospital. Since that day, Aron has had a remarkable recovery. He is back out on the mountains, with an artificial limb; he speaks to select groups on his ordeal and rescue; and amazingly, he is upbeat, positive, and an inspiration to all who meet him. This is the account of those five days, of the years that led up to them, and where he goes from here. It is narrative non-fiction at its most compelling.

Hilariously funny, Flour Babies is a brilliant depiction of secondary school life.

One stormy night, five stranded schoolchildren uncover the story of Richard Clayton Harwick – a boy who many years ago learned what it was like to have a truly wicked stepfather. But the children have stories of their own step-parents to tell – stories that have warmth and humour, as well as sadness, and a fair share of happy endings. ‘For children who have some similar experience, this novel will be therapeutic; for those who haven’t it’s an absorbing read, to make them laugh and cry’ Sunday Telegraph.

Little Theatre Musical Book, Music and Lyrics by The Heather Brothers. Characters: 4 male, 5 female Unit set. The Heather Brothers' homage to swinging sixties music was a smash hit at the King's Head Theatre and it enjoyed a long run after transferring to London's Arts Theatre. Slice has a lot of lively original songs in it, 30 of them, each neatly perched on the edge between parody of early rock and the real thing.-- Boston Globe. A pleasurable, lightly satirical revel in sixties manners and music ... with bite, kick and hanky panky.-- Guardian. Full of such clever, self mocking charm that it's difficult to come away feeling anything but thoroughly entertained.... The real pleasure comes from The Brothers' shameless poaching of an eclectic cross section of famous numbers.... Superb comic pastiche and sharp, cuff link humor.-- Time Out. A musical pastiche that takes you spinning back to the swinging decade to celebrate the eternal embarrassment of teen age.-- What's On.
