Return to the stage: Nazir (centre) with the cast of SuperMokh the Musical at the press conference.
KUALA LUMPUR: Bowing to popular demand, SuperMokh The Musical is making a comeback at Istana Budaya from Sept 8 to 21.
The musical, which is based on the life
of one of Malaysia’s football giants, Datuk Mokhtar Dahari, is the brainchild of Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, the Sultan of Selangor.
CIMB Group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Nazir Tun Razak said he hoped that the musical would inspire Malaysians.
“In Mokhtar, we find a Malaysian past that sheds light on a brighter future ... (The musical) is a good, enjoyable way to get to know one of our Malaysian icons and better appreciate a glorious past of Malaysian football and perhaps Malaysia too,” he said at a press conference on the musical on Wednesday.
Nazir said the late Mokhtar was one of his personal heroes.
“He held himself to a set of personal values – integrity, commitment, courage and humility,” he added.
CIMB Group is the title sponsor of the musical.
Also present was Mokhtar’s wife Datin Tengku Zarina Tengku Ibrahim.
Produced by Tall Productions Sdn Bhd and Jugra Publications Sdn Bhd, the musical features Awie and Maya Karin who will reprise their roles as Mokhtar and Tengku Zarina respectively.
The cast also includes Rashidi Ishak, Douglas Lim, Dina Nadzir, Radhi Khalid and Phoon Chi Ho.
Tickets are priced between RM46 and RM236 for the night show and between RM38 and RM246 for matinee.
They are available at Istana Budaya’s box office or online via www.ticket2u.biz.
CIMB customers will enjoy a 10% discount on all ticket prices for CIMB Credit and Debit card holders and 15% for tickets priced at RM166, RM236 and RM306 when they use the CIMB Enrich WORLD MasterCard, WORLD MasterCard, Preferred Visa INFINITE, Visa INFINITE and Visa SIGNATURE.
