We have some very exciting news to share! Our agency client Mia Lakha has been cast in the UK touring production of Bugsy Malone. Based on the iconic 1976 movie by Alan Parker, this spectacular theatrical touring experience is a revival of the critically-acclaimed Lyric Hammersmith Theatre production.

The touring production will comprise of a young company of 39 actors, including three teams of seven kids. Mia will be taking on the part of Blousey Brown, an aspiring singer and actress. The musical is packed with instantly recognisable songs from Oscar winner Paul Williams including ‘My Name is Tallulah’, ‘You Give A Little Love’, and ‘So You Wanna Be a Boxer?’. Bugsy Malone is a sure to be a musical comedy treat!
Mia’s previous professional work includes Annie (UK Tour), The Prince of Egypt (West End), A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Bonnie & Clyde (West End concert) for theatre, and Chuggington (BBC) for television.
