SHORT+SWEET MALAYSIA 2010 (SHORT+SWEET MUSICAL)
Today, I went to watch some musical theatre presented by Short+Sweet Malaysia 2010 at Kuala Lumpur Performing Art (KLPAC) . They started performing since week one from 29 September until 2 October and tonight was their last performane. I actually dont know anything about this event and this is the first time i went to KLPAC. To tell the truth, i was on the trip because at the last minutes, some of my friends from UPSI Tanjung Malim could not make it, so i became his representative. Thanks to Zack (he had to go to Muar for some bussiness there :p)

Tonight there were 4 short musical theatre:
1. A Grave Matter directed by Megat Sharizal
2. Ghosts directed by Hot Buns
3. Cupidity directed by Christopher Ling
4. Little Girl Lost directed by Llew Marsh
A Grave Matter is a story mainly about a man who love his dead lover and try his best to revive her using part2 of bodies that he collected from a graveyard. He finally successful in reviving his girlfriend. This incident led to police cases and lastly he got caught. But there's some fight between the detective and the man and in the end both the man and his girfriend died.
I actually found that this story is kinda easy to predict. Its really like one of the song from Avenged Sevenfold-A little piece of heaven.
Ghost is about a girl who lost his boyfriend but keep seeing him in her dreams.. There were a scene where the girl saw her boyfriend outside the window etc..in the end,they met each other.
Aand thats it. Im sorry,because i really could not hear any more than that. But they really put a good performance. ^_^
Cupidity. I love this one. Very hillarious. ^_^ This is a story of a boy and a girl that at the beginning of the story were not connected at all. But with the help of three cupid (2 girl and one guy) they finally become together. A romantic comedy plus musical performance. Love the ending where they dancing together..with awkwardness hahaha :p
Little Girl Lost. I dont know why I tick their performance as the best performance during audience choice award. If I want to say..their story is really simple. Its all about a missing daughter, the Mom become panicked, rushing left to right of the stage. The setting is in some Boutique, or cloth shop. Then after the mom left, each of the staff began their own stories. But..I must say here..all of their actors are really good in singing!! I think I was mesmerized by their voices...and I think,this is what they call Musical Theatre. ^_^ Love it!
After all team finished their performance, there are some Prize Giving Ceremony..
Congratulations to the individual winners for the Best Actor (Male), Best Actor (Female), Best Supporting Actor (Male) and Best Supporting Actor (Female). (sorry,no names)
and Congratulation to the overall winner Little Girl Lost!!!!
I knew they will win! ^_^
