  1. What's the problem with Bugsy Malone?: http://bit.ly/iYncqO

    We didn't have a problem with any part of Bugsy at all at my (Methodist Foundation) Prep School.
    The children absolutely adored it and their ultra-conservative parents found nothing whatsoever to complain about either, which was a bonus!
    It's far too easy to be oh-so-anti-this-and-anti-that on the grounds of not wishing to offend anyone or give children , but I found it really good, clean fun - the music was catchy and rewarding, the orchestral parts eminently playable by children (apart from the piano).
    It's taking the mickey out of the old-style gangsters, for Heaven's sake!
    I always think that teachers who come out with sentences like this: "providing you have a full discussion with the students on some of the issues it raises" - are causing more problems than they solve!
    Anyway - much as I would love to get really worked up about http://bit.ly/iYncqO - I have reports to write.
    Lots of them!
  3. Do you have a copy of the script which I could borrow???? Please! I have looked everywhere!
