Default Amdram / drama / acting / theatre ?

Hi again BE

Anyone know of any drama/acting-type clubs that exist in KL, and/or any well-regarded theatres (commercial or funded by a Govt arts council or similar)? I used to work in the theatre "industry" back in London and would be interested to know what acting-related activity exists in KL, either for getting involved with amateur dramatics or "proper" theatres where we might go to see professionally-produced plays?

Hi LivKL, the only one I know of is PJ Live Arts. Sure there must be some more around but I have heard that Malaysians are not a theatre going public, certainly not on the scale you'd see in Western countries. I was listening to an interview on local radio the other day with a performer who said it was incredibly hard to get Govt arts funding in Malaysia and there was a lot of reliance on private sector/corporate funding. Good luck on your hunt.

have at look at The Actors Studio (http://www.theactorsstudio.com.my/) and KL Performing Arts Centre ie KLPAC (http://www.theactorsstudio.com.my/). not exactly Govt funded though
