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

#SaveYourSeat #Saveklpac

This is a fundraiser for klpac but there will be no show.

We don’t know when our next show will be and under what circumstances.

Now, some theatre halls are sponsored by corporates. But what if we had 504 individual sponsors, one for each seat in klpac’s main theatre Pentas 1. Pick your favourite seat and adopt one! Founded as a “teater untuk rakyat” (theatre for the community), it would be wonderful to have a whole community of supporters behind us.
We may not be able to gift you with a physical show now in return but we promise that we will gift Klang Valley with many, many more shows and programmes in years to come.

We urge you to adopt that seat for the future of klpac and the future of the arts in Malaysia because #TogetherWeCan!

This adopt-a-seat programme and benefits are for 2020 only.
