The Magical Musical 2011 - Gala Premier

Thank you, AMBP for the pair of passes to the Gala Premier of "Magical Musicals"!

I was really happy (probably ecstatic) when I found out that I was one of the 'winners' of the contest. I couldn't even recall participating nor could I recall what I did to win the passes! Hahaha...I think all I did was just to indicate my interest to attend the musical & walla! I got the tickets :D Hurrah!!

I must say that the musical was a spectacular one (it's my first time to a musical so I've nothing to compare it with)! Great casts & a very enjoyable performance. I'm too un-bothered to elaborate on what this musical is about, so if you want to find out more, head to this site: Magical Musicals.

One of the few set backs was the queuing up for the tickets as all of us winners did not know where the queue was! *grrr* We were informed through email that the ticket redemption starts at 6:30p.m. in front of Sunway Lagoon. However, the AMBP team were 'late' & there was no sign whatsoever to direct us to the actual place of redemption. Most, if not all of us stood blankly at one spot, in hopes that that's the actual line. It felt SO weird!


Anyhow, I was glad that after queuing up for half an hour plus, I got my pair of tickets to the Blue Zone (Apparently there are some Red Zone tickets, but I didn't get it! It's randomly given out...booo...the earlier ones should be given the Red Zone tickets...). Complimentary tickets means no-extra-goodies :( We didn't get any event booklet as well...only the Media Representatives got it.


I haven't been to the Sunway Lagoon Amphitheatre, so I didn't know that it was such a LONG walk from the entrance of Sunway Lagoon =.=" Some friends told me that there is a shorter route to the amphitheatre, but unfortunately, we were guided through the longer route. We even had to take the tram/train at one point to the amphitheatre area! I felt like I was at a night safari!


We were LATE, TIRED, feeling HOT, & SWEATY *pffft* What's better is that I didn't know there's no air-conditioning at the amphitheatre....oh, joy. Yes, I was as blind & ignorant as a bat.

We walked down the red carpet, greeted by Lite FM's DJs Zack & Sarah along with Mix FM's JD & Dilly. They were trying pretty hard to keep the crowd entertained, but I personally prefer to have the musical to begin on time instead...hahaha...


The amphitheatre was SO empty when we walked in...only when the show was about to begin that it was FULL!


The stage was nicely set :)

I was there for CQ

Let the musical begin!
We were serenaded to songs from "Moulin Rouge!, Mamma Mia!, Dreamgirls, Fame, Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Footloose, We Will Rock You, West Side Story, Hairspray and even the latest television musical phenomenon, Glee." - taken from AMBP's website. The best part about attending a gala premier is the "special privilege" to snap photos during the show (since there are media representatives on the same night) :D

Nice lighting effects too...
I'm VERY glad that my 'lil camera could do such an awesome job even when I'm sitting in the middle (top) of the amphitheatre, not in front/bottom!


And the stage was 'bursting in flames' during 1 of the songs!



I was really surprised to find our own locals as part of the musical...

Food, anyone?
As at many musicals/plays/shows, you'll find the "hot dog guy" walking around, selling terribly expensive food that people will still buy.

Dreamgirls
*bling bling* I like their glittery clothes!


They even sang "Umbrella"...


Finale
All of us got to our feet to dance & sing along...ah, it was fun!

I wouldn't mind going for another musical. Better still to win yet another pair or several passes to such shows! :D I really thank God for this first win of the year...woohoo! I'm looking forward for more to come!!


Happy feet!

Well you could catch Dreamgirls. They're coming to KL soon I think.

I had the privilege of watching Phantom of the Opera in New York. But even that I didn't know how to appreciate. Nearly felt asleep mid-way through the show. LOL.
