FROM the choreographer of Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical (Farah was NOT the choreographer of PGLM. Don't know where the reporter got this info. Tsk tsk) comes DanSing Thru Broadway, a musical performance in aid of Persatuan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa Hulu Langat.

It is organised by Farah Sulaiman & Friends which comprises Lynda Leong, Aida Farisa, Azizan, Nora Shariff, Fatimah Ahmad, Zuraina Wong and Farah.

Farah & Friends have been working together since the production of Jalan Impian... The Musical in 2005.

DanSing Thru Broadway is choreographed and produced by Farah and directed by Sabrina Hassan with Helen Yap as the music director.

It tells the story of Karim who aspires to be a Broadway star.The geeky and somewhat timid Karim attends an interview for a personal assistant’s job to Grey, a theatre producer.

Grey is appalled by Karim’s lacklustre demeanour. He tells Karim the story of Hello Dolly where Cornelius and Barnaby present themselves as millionaires to attract their dream girls.

Hence, the journey through Broadway begins for Karim.

The musical features 20 hit songs from Broadway musicals such as Hello Dolly, Miss Saigon, My Fair Lady and Grease as well as Mary Poppins.

“It was difficult to audition for the boys’ roles as they seem to shy away from theatre, particularly musicals. Dancing and singing are probably not their field of interest,” said Farah.The cast of 39 children and adults include Aidil (AF), Peter Ong, Radhi Khalid, Doreen Tang, Sabrina Hassan, Brian Mac and many more. It also features the Sayang Dancers and Sayang Junior Dancers.

DanSing Thru Broadway will be staged at Panggung Bandaraya, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) from June 25-29.

Ticket are priced at RM103.50/RM83.50 on Gala Night (June 28), RM83.50/RM53.50 (June 25-28) and RM43.50 for matinee shows (June 28 and 29). Showtimes: 3pm and 8pm.

For bookings, log on to or call 03-4149-8600 .

This event is sponsored by ONEKL, Tradewinds Corporation Bhd and Sunrise Bhd.

DanSing Thru Broadway is also supported by Lembah Sari, Kiara View, Fitters, Berjaya Corporation Bhd, PPC Glomac Sdn Bhd and DBKL.
