MaharajaLela! The musical, “The greatest Love Story Never Told”. The brave Dato Maharajalela heroically defends his beloved village of Pasir Salak, against the ever-growing threat of colonial oppression. However, the villainous Perak Resident J.W.W Birch is a cunning adversary, determined to suppress the rebellion. Now Maharajalela is faced with the difficult choice of whether to trust the beautiful Petronella. Does she truly love him, or will she betray him to the wicked Resident.
The Festival of Diversity is a massive Malaysian cultural extravaganza, consisting of a full-length musical, followed by a vibrant performance of Dikir Barat. Our cast and crew are no more than 130 unpaid amateurs, all working together to mesh Malay, Indian, and Chinese traditions with Western pop culture to create a truly unique experience.
