Photos: Gangs, gags and splurge guns

Armed with cream pies, splurge guns and slapstick, the kids of Kerikeri Youth Theatre dragged the Turner Centre back to the days of gang rivalries in prohibition-era New York. Their first production, the musical gangster comedy Bugsy Malone, featured a cast of 55 aged 7-16 in seven performances packed with songs, dance and gags, culminating in a last giant splurge gun fight in Sunday afternoon’s finale.
