Workshop @ IEC, KK, Sabah

The Cast Members of Broadway Parodies Lagi Lah had the opportunities to share some tips on how to be a performing artist. We conducted a short 2 hours debrief of Acting, Singing & Dancing in the said event which was attended by more than 20 students from various backgrounds.

The flight to KK was about 2.5 hours and we were already wet traveling from the lobby to our coach because buses are not allowed to pick up passengers from the lobby. Anyway, their lobby is beautiful. The rooms are not too bad too.

Our next technical run is on Friday night. Show is on Saturday. Do come and watch us performing in KK!

For the kids who attended our workshop on Thursday afternoon, we hope you guys have enjoyed and take back some learnings from us.

Review: Musical A Runaway Success

The Star Metro: Thursday October 16, 2008

Musical a runaway successs

Story and photos by ANTHONY LAW

THE musical, Broadway Parodies Lagi Lah, staged by the Actors Studio at Taman Budaya in Ipoh was a runaway success.

The performers, who presented a series of hilarious songs, kept the audience entertained with their two-hour non-stop performance.

The event provided a good opportunity for Ipoh folk to meet talented personalities like Farah Sulaiman, Ho Soon Yoon, Glamorique Arshad, Keith Yew, Mia Palencia, Shahila Johan, Tabitha Kong, Janet Lee, Sham Sunder Binwani, Sarah Low, Zeqthy Nattrah Ramli, Lim Ang Swee, John Siew, Loi Chin Yu and Edna Tan.

Sham Sunder, who virtually stole the show with his hugely versatile role, said it was a great experience to perform in front of a receptive audience.

“It gives us encouragement to perform even better,” Sham Sunder said after the performance recently.

He added that he and his group practised for seven weeks for the musical which was organised by the Perak Society of Performing Arts (PSPA).

Production designer Edna Tan said while it was a challenging experience to perform before the Ipoh audience, the wonderful response was really an “ego booster” for her.

“It was a sort of ego trip for me to perform as I was just stepping in to take the place of another member who was not available,” said Tan who took on the role of a rich Datin going on a shopping spree in the musical.

She added that she did not find any difficulty following the group throughout the performance.
Palencia, who was a lead performer, said it was very challenging to perform in front of an entirely different audience.

She said the Taman Budaya theatre was an excellent venue for her to get intimate with the audience because of its small size which meant that the spectators sat nearer to the stage.

“I enjoy every moment of the show and obviously I could see they are hanging on to the words I said and sang. They were laughing throughout the show,” Palencia said.

Kong, who kept the audience entertained with her humorous role by singing Good Morning Towels to the tune of Good Morning Starshine, said it was a wonderful feeling to be performing before an enthusiastic crowd.

Kong had been singing gospel for eight years and her great love for musical theatre attracted her to turn full time in performing arts. Prior to this, she worked as a brand manager in an advertising company.

“Wow! It is wonderful to appear in Ipoh which is such a close community and a good neighbourhood to be in,” Kong said.

PSPA president Datin Rosalina Ooi said the society decided to bring the show to Ipoh to expose the local folk to the performing arts.

Thank You JB!

Yay! We have completed our run in Johore Bahru. Thank you for being such sporting audience!

The food in JB is not too bad either. I heard that there are good choices around at the Taman Pelangi side! Our JB trip was a short one. Hence, could not explore more but just to get ourselves ready for the performances.

JOTIC was quite interesting. Halfway through the play, we were greeted by the JOTIC Youth Orchestra. We were on our way to the main door for the 2nd half and they were playing "Love Story". Pretty amazing, I must say considering most of them are still in their teens.

We stayed in The Embassy Hotel, lovely hotel. No complaints at all!

Our next stop is Kota Kinabalu (KK), Sabah, Negeri Di Bawah Bayu.

We will be conducting workshop a day before the show. So, do watch out for information from your local contact person.
