This musical performance that will took around 90 minutes involved me, not as the performer, not as the organiser, but me as the people behind helping for the stage making with my two other friends. Yes, it’s only three person handling the whole sets making, lead by an architect whom is our former lecturer, in charge of stage design.
There is two sets. One set is a backdrop of forest which can be folded with two giant trees, and a jungle-like entrance attached to it. The two trees will be in look of a garden before these are raised up so that the tall trees are seen. The next set is a backdrop of castle which can be folded too, same principle applied. There are many cuttings and openings for the castle that allows play of light over the white structure. The other stuff that we made is the can-be-folded long table. All these are made of recycled materials like cardboards and newspapers, we are going on green direction.
It is organized by famous Berjaya Corporation Berhad with PAN Productions. It is a small scale production.
Have you ever wondered what happened to all your favourite fairy-tale characters beyond “happily ever after”?
…Well, as it turns out, happily ever after proves to be rather elusive for Snow White, The Mad Hatter, Prince Charming, The Red Queen, Little Mermaid, The White Queen, Little Red Riding Hood, Peter Pan and the Big Bad Wolf…
Life, especially married life, is no Wonderland as it turns out.
In this musical comedy, Gloria, a young girl seeks out the help and advice from her favourite fairy-tale characters for the secret of ‘happily ever-after’. How will she find her happily ever-after despite her over-bearing Fairy Godmother, a meddling Guardian Angel, and a whole host of over-the-top characters intent on giving their two cents worth? Will love triumph in the end?
