Message from Our Founders (17 March 2020)

In the thirty-one years of our wondrous existence, this is the first time we have had to close our doors. As necessary as it is, it still breaks our hearts.

Faridah and I, on behalf of klpac, TAS, and penangpac regret to announce the immediate cancellation of all activities until the end of this month. This is in line with the government’s directive to restrict all public movement and gatherings. In this challenging time we are deeply saddened, but we are cognizant that our first priority must always be the safety and well-being of our patrons, our employees, both full time and freelancers, and to the greater community at large. Our hearts go out to all the other theatre groups and freelance practitioners who, unfortunately, do not have the wherewithal to combat this present crisis.

To our patrons, God love you, who have most kindly donated refunds of purchased tickets, we thank you for your caring generosity. To those who are awaiting refunds on purchased/cancelled performances, we ask for your patience. We are only able to process it after the Order comes to an end. We are forever grateful for your understanding and with your help we will remain positive in these uncertain times.

God bless you, and thank you for supporting Malaysian Theatre.

Joe & Faridah

Brainchild of Joe Hasham OAM, Talking About is our all-new documentary series that revolves around casual chats with arts makers that offer a rare glimpse into how a production is brought to life. A new episode will be released via our YouTube channel every two weeks. Click here for more information.

Barang Best @ klpac

Barang Best @klpac is our brand new shop on FB and at klpac’s lobby. It all started when artist Kamwei gifted us with 38 prints. It was the third time Kamwei has gifted us his works.
