A Musical Tribute to P. Ramlee

Legendary star, Teuku Zakaria Teuku Nyak Puteh or P. Ramlee is without doubt Malaysia’s icon and one-time film idol. Although it has been four decades since the star’s demise, P. Ramlee’s movies and songs are still a huge draw with Malaysians.
As a fitting tribute to the legend’s artistic works, a musical play by Persatuan Kebudayaan Daerah Kinta (Kinta District Cultural Society) is in the pipeline.
“Muzika Ramlee” will be staged at the auditorium of the Perak Department of Arts and Culture along Jalan Caldwell, Ipoh on May 23 and 24. It will showcase a new cast line-up following an audition for fresh talents held at the auditorium on Saturday, April 26.
The objective of the audition was two-fold, to find the right people for the musical and also the crew. Besides that, those who came for the selection would have the opportunity to participate in upcoming plays scheduled  in June and September.
Director and script writer, Ard Omar, said the play is centred around three young men who worked at a joget joint in an entertainment park. The trio is always in some kind of trouble with the management. Their antics and the hilarious ways in which they go about resolving their problems would be the main theme of the musical.
“I am really excited about the play, as the songs bring fond memories of my past,” said producer Yusof Najmi. “P. Ramlee’s songs are true classics,” he enjoined.
Tickets for the musical are priced at RM3 for students and RM5 for adults. They are available at the auditorium on performance days.
