[popuppress id="4132"] Get Started


It all began in 1880 during the mining boom. The glint of tin promised riches and attracted an influx of pioneers from across the Asian region to the muddy junction of the two rivers, Sungai Lumpur (now Sungai Gombak) and Sungai Kelang. We meet Mamat, Meng and Muthiah, three friends who came to this frontier town of Kuala Lumpur in search of opportunities and a new life.

Through their journey we encounter a host of colourful characters, each with their own enduring personalities and stories. Together these characters and stories form the cultural mosaic of what we all now know as modern Kuala Lumpur.

About Panggung Bandaraya

The Theatre

Designed by A.B. Hubback in 1901, this Mughal-inspired complex features a unique curved façade and a copper dome above the main porch. This was the first official administration office for the Kuala Lumpur Sanitary Board and witnessed important meetings that shaped Kuala Lumpur’s early town planning. It was declared open by Sir William Treacher in 1904 at a grand farewell ball in his honour.

Later, Panggung Bandaraya was central in the early development of the performing arts in Kuala Lumpur. While there is little documentation on the performance history at this venue, many staff of the Kuala Lumpur City Hall reached out to us and shared their own stories and experiences over the years. Not forgetting the many performing arts practitioners who generously shared memories of their time in Panggung Bandaraya. There has been many changes in the landscape around Panggung Bandaraya yet this heritage building has proudly stood tall through the years.

A Production by Enfiniti Vision Media

Enfiniti Vision Media (formerly Enfiniti Productions Sdn Bhd) is the company responsible for bringing one of Malaysia’s most beloved tales to the theater stage. You might have heard of it , it’s called Puteri Gunung Ledang. The humble musical production about a mystical Javenese princess was only adapted for the big screen, accepted as an official entry for Best Foreign Film award at the 76th Academy Awards and became the first Malaysian film ever to be shown at the Venice Film Festival in 2004.

We won a bunch of awards for that little project too including Best Actress, Best Producer and Best Director. To the rest of the world it may not be much, but to us it’s kind of a big deal. Our hardworking cast and crew including Tiara Jacquelina, M. Nasir, Christine Hakim, Alex Komang, Adlin Aman Ramlie, Dato’ Rahim Razali, Sofia Jane and a stellar cast of regional stars are seriously proud of our ‘babies’.

And now we’ve come together again to bring you our latest production, MUD. We hope you enjoy our story of KL and help turn it into another big deal!
