Through a pandemic…
A transnational collaboration…
Countless Zoom rehearsals…

Bollywood Dreams is a labour of love that was almost two years in the making. Despite the odds including numerous cast changes, it finally premiered to a live audience when performances were permitted in March 2021 after 5 long months.

Though our reopening was much anticipated, it was a bittersweet one. On one hand, Bollywood Dreams played to full houses for all five shows and we were able to welcome back many theatre goers amid strict SOPs. However, we could not accommodate many more as we had to operate at 30% of our capacity due to distancing guides. And just a short 39 days later, live performances would be shut down again.

If there’s one thing that the pandemic has taught us is that we have to keep dreaming. We’re thrilled to announce that we will premiere Bollywood Dreams online via CloudTheatre from 11 to 13 June.

Directed by Dato’ Dr. Faridah Merican, Bollywood Dream’s heart-warming story of two boys with big dreams is based on “Big Head Potato Head” by Mark Beau de Silva (Malaysia) and co-adapted by Tilottama Pillai (New York).

The show was originally staged in March 2021 at Pentas 1, The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre.
