London, The Summer Musical Gala Premiere

It was 7 years back when I went for my very first musical in Istana Budaya for The Sound of Music. I'm still keeping my ecstasy of attending a musical deep inside me, all accumulated and now I'm able go for another one after so long.

All thanks to Avante for giving me a pair of tickets for the Gala Premiere of London, The Summer Musical which was held in the Amphitheater, Sunway Lagoon. My partner of the day, no doubt, my cousin Qi Tyng. I couldn't think of another person that enjoy musical as much as I do!

London, The Summer Musical will be around daily from 1st June to 8th July 2012, except Tuesday at 8pm in Amphitheater, Sunway Lagoon!


Just right in front of the Sunway Hotel and the entrance towards Surf Beach of Sunway Lagoon

Synopsis:
Follow the inspiring story of 3 American air stewardesses who gave up their dreams of singing, only to rediscover it again across the Atlantic in London's West End and find love along the way in the all-new London, the Summer Musical by award winning West End productions! 



There, the awesomely beautiful Sunway Hotel



Our tickets or they called this the Boarding Pass, which I think Malaysia Airlines is one of the sponsor of the musical.
The ticket is in such a good quality, love it max



At the back of the ticket



There is a train waiting for us once we had entered the Surf Beach entrance of Sunway Lagoon. This train is going to bring us all the way to the Amphitheater. Don't get fooled by the kiddy color of the train that look like a toy, it moves VERY FAST! It is so fast and fun that I wish the journey is longer :)
This picture took by Qi Tyng. Spot me in the train!



Being the first person on the train, it is so much easier for us to take picture!



My partner of the show and her pink koala!



At the entrance of the Amphitheater



Being the early birds inside the Amphitheater. Most of the invited bloggers and partners were seated at the Blue Zone on the right side, where this picture was taken. The other Blue Zone seats in the middle were filled with Media after that.

The Blue Zone tickets will be sold for RM83, where you can purchase it here in AirAsiaRedTix.com: http://redtix.airasia.com/events/LondonTheSummerMusical/

The ticket for the Red Zone on the left and right is RM103, while the Red Zone in the middle a.k.a the VIP zone is RM153



The stage from the view of the right Blue Zone seats. In my opinion, at this distance from the stage for about RM80 is already great for me. However, I'm lucky enough to be invited for the gala premiere. 

I wouldn't say the stage is big. However, looking at the efforts of props made by the musical team, it made the show look big and mega enough :)



The show started with the song Flying The Flag by Scooch, which was the UK entry during the 2007 Eurovision. Great song to start in a musical, but it isn't the best choice of song for a talent competition.

While I'm still warming up myself with the musical, I miss out some of the songs. Fortunately after that, I started to get into mostly all of the songs in there. Some of the songs sang in the musical:

Last Friday Night - Katy Perry
The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars
Footloose 
Let's Hear it from the Boys - Footloose
Hollywood - Michael Buble
Through the Eyes of Love (Ice Castle Theme) - Melissa Manchester
Uptown Girl
Color My World - Petula Clark
Can You Feel the Love Tonight - Elton John
It's My Party - Lesley Gore

Songs from Mammia Mia by ABBA:
Gimme Gimme Gimme!
Lay All Your Love on Me
Voulez Vous
Waterloo

Ain't No Mountain High Enough
It's Raining Men

Songs from James Bond:
From Russia with Love - Matt Monro
Thunderball - Tom Jones
Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey

My Heart will Go On - Celine Dion
Diamonds are Girl's Best Friend - Marilyn Monroe
Closer - Ne-Yo
One Thing - One Direction
I will Survive - Gloria Gaynor
Deep River Mountain High - Celine Dion

This is just some of the songs that sang during the musical, not ALL. But, nothing more hyped than going to the musical yourself and listening to them singing all of these!



One of the scene, where I think the height fright would not be able to act on. I didn't so see much safety measure being put on when they were acting up there, so near to the edge >.<



The 3 lead actors, cute boys with British accent. The one in the middle sang Can You Feel The Love Tonight beautifully
Awww...



There will a break in between the show for around 10 minutes, where we were entertained by the sponsors' clips on the screen



During the performance of Marilyn Monroe's Diamonds Are Girl's Best Friend



Near the end of the show, with gala outfits and great songs!



At the end of the day, my ticket turn out to spell "Ondon" >.<

The shows run for about 90 minutes, job well done. I totally love it when you know some of the songs, singing along with them. The mummy of 3 children beside me was so ecstatic that when we clapped our hands high up in the air, she almost hit me in every attempt during the song One Thing!

This musical is well recommended!


:)


Love

Hmm, they started segregating bloggers and media already, is it?

Last time I went, they gave me media pass.

I guess the 1st half of the show can be considered as musical, the second half was total crapness... I would rather pay for a concert ticket to watch One Direction live. LOL! Anyway, well done on the song list but seems like u missed Copacabana :)
