KUALA LUMPUR -– A new and original musical featuring around 50 international and local singers, dancers, actors and musicians will open in Kuala Lumpur in April.

The family friendly show is the result of the biggest ever artistic collaboration between Malaysian and Australian artists and is presented by The Actors Studio, in association with Australian partners.

"Sinbad has a great story with 18 wonderful songs and an unbelievably talented cast. It’s by far our biggest production to date," says Artistic Director Joe Hasham OAM.

According to Ric Herbert, an Australian TV and Musical Theatre star who has worked on Sinbad since its inception and plays one of the lead roles, "Sinbad has something for everyone."

"It’s a magical show and of course it includes favourite characters drawn from the Arabian Nights – a handsome swashbuckling hero, a beautiful princess and of course the evil wizard. Plus there’s the real stage magic – special effects with the Genie and the Flying Carpet."

Executive Producer Dato' Faridah Merican is convinced that with Sinbad “We have an opportunity to create a show that can really build over the coming years with seasons in Malaysia and beyond”.

Sinbad The Musical, with its winning formula of combining a Broadway style of music, captivating story, high adventure, and colourful characters against a backdrop of visual splendour, is set to be another unmissable treat for all ages!

Sinbad opens at The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac) on April 11 and runs to April 27 and then at the Performing Arts Centre of Penang (penangpac) from May 2 until May 11.
