Post image for Spotted: Cast of Bugsy Malone, Jr. getting “stringed”

Emails Gina Hart: “At the finale last night of Bugsy Malone, Jr., 4th and 5th grade Encinal students took one final bow for their audience. Little did they know that their directors and a few sneaky parents had a Silly String attack planned.

“After Bugsy Malone displayed his two golden tickets to Hollywood with Blousey Brown, they smiled, took a bow and then shrieks of laughter broke out as everyone on stage was unexpectedly sprayed with the splurge props filled with silly string. It was quite a sight!
