●● TYTHERINGTON School’s Performing Arts Department will entertain audiences with the classic gangster story Bugsy Malone, set in New York in the Roaring Twenties.
Actors and musicians from Year 7 to Sixth Form will take part in the production after an ‘overwhelming’ number of students auditioned for the roles in January.
Year 7 student Lewis Peal will play the title role of Bugsy, while Lily Hill will play aspiring singer Blousey Brown and Ella Wharton will take on the role of flirtatious chanteuse Tallulah.
Both girls are also in Year 7 and will act alongside a host of talented older students.
Rehearsals are underway for the hotly anticipated performance which school staff say is set to be ‘a smash’.
Shows take place on Monday, July 6, Tuesday, July 7, Wednesday, July 8 and Friday, July 10.
Bugsy Malone follows the school’s sell-out success of Little Shop of Horrors last October. ●● THE Tytherington Club is putting on a summer fair on Saturday, July 25 from 11am to 5pm.
Entry is free and includes a funfair, children’s activities, food and drink, family games, music, and a raffle.
There will be a variety of stalls and a display arena showcasing local talent. ●● A PLANNING application from SHS Estates to Cheshire East Council to build a one-and-a-half storey detached dwelling at Tytherington Old Hall has been withdrawn after objections including that it would not enhance the heritage asset and would restrict light to the south west of the property at 16 Turnberry Close.
Plans have been submitted to the council for a car port with a flat felt roof and fencing panels to both sides at 27 Harvest Road.
