From Dalat International School’s RTL Players is a new theatre production –  Captured In Time & Space. Directed by Mark Sasse, who won the best script award in Short & Sweet Theatre Penang 2013, Captured In Time & Space also features other Short+Sweet alums such as Jacqueline Ashikin, Tesa Sasse, Ciera Nash and Joseph Stoltzfus.

Here’s a snippet of what to expect with Captured In Time & Space:

Unforgettable moments of life – captured in time and space. The RLT Players are back for their third season with a brand new set of dramatic sketches and short musicals, which are funny, poignant, and all original. The show includes the wacky comedy “The Giant Squid that Ate Georgetown”, the poignant drama “I Once was Blind”, and the award-winning dramatic sketch, “‘No’ in Spite of Itself” – winner of best script award in Short & Sweet Theatre Penang 2013. The show also features the unique rhythmic dancing of “Black & White” and the mini-musical “Captured in Time & Space” as featured in Short & Sweet Musical KL 2013. This is a fun and uplifting show for all ages that is not be missed.

A PenTAS exclusive: Marrying Me – The Musical

“Still no boyfriend ah?”

Every single woman who has had this question hurled at her would understand how annoying it can be to have nosy aunties and ‘well-meaning’ relatives trying to set her up with any Abu, Ah Beng or Appu.

And “Still no boyfriend ah?” is how the publicity team behind Christopher Ling’s upcoming production, Marrying Me, starts of its pre-pre press release, which came along with a personal note stating that PenTAS was the first media to receive the preliminary information on what seems to be like a syiok-tastic musical comedy. Brownie points for Marrying Me (which I hope would eventually translate into ticket sales).

Based on a book written by Mark Beau De Silva, this production by the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac) in collaboration with the Penang Performing Arts Centre (penangpac) tells the story of one Stephanie – a proud single woman. But as her will to resist marriagehood starts to fray and a looming tragedy corners her, will Stephanie change her “I don’t” to the dreaded “I do”?

We will just have to wait for Dec 5 to find out what Stephanie does when Marrying Me opens at penangpac.
