Buck Creek Players

INDIANAPOLIS — Tap-dancing flappers and gangsters from the Roaring ’20s take the stage at the Buck Creek Playhouse, 11150 Southeastern Ave., in “Bugsy Malone Jr.,” based on the 1976 film starring Scott Baio and Jodie Foster. Two gangs comprised completely of children square off in a 1920s rivalry. Dandy Dan’s gang has the upper hand with the “splurge” gun that shoots whipped cream. Fat Sam and his gang are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is Fat Sam’s last chance. Performances are weekends through Sunday. Tickets are $18, with $3 from every ticket going to the Blaine Jarrett Memorial Scholarship Fund. For more information, visit buckcreeplayers.com or call 317-862-2270.
