Stories From A Mixtape
Drawing from their own experiences of falling in love and its labyrinth of emotions, local band sensation, Leonard Theng & The Cerita are all set to woo the audience, with their musical prelude, “Stories From A Mixtape” which will see them pay homage to 80’s music and lyrics, navigating the highs and lows of one’s first encounter with the four letter word, LOVE!
Promising to keep the audience entertained, Leonard Theng & The Cerita, will be creating a myriad of roller-coaster emotions and a night of reminiscence, capturing the essence of teenage love in various scenes. “We hope to make this musical into a household repertoire, bringing in together thousands of Malaysians to celebrate the power of music that brings people together, regardless of stature or religion, whilst focusing on this “New hopeful Malaysia” rather than the differences that has set us apart for many years, quipped Mr. Leonard Theng.
Broken down into four parts and featuring hit songs from the 1980’s, the musical scores will be performed by Leonard Theng & The Cerita, whilst the storyline will be narrated and acted by Jiggee Jon.
Audience will be glued to their seats from Scene 1 – CAN’T FIGHT THIS FEELING , where almost if not at least 85% have experienced that first crush, that one person whom we were secretly “in love” with, that girl or guy you were infatuated with, how your world just lit up with just by a glimpse of her / his smile.
SCENE 2 – THE POWER OF LOVE . Reminiscing the moment when you first held hands? That gentle embrace as you look deep into each other’s eyes? How time stood still during your first kiss? What a feeling! Everything was perfect in that moment! You found your soul mate!
The subsequent scene deals with the reality of love. Scene 3 – SHATTERED DREAMS , explores the emptiness inside your heart as you watch her / him disappear into crowd at the airport as she/ he goes away to further her/ his studies. The countless letters written with no response! The moment when you realize that you are no longer the centre of her / his world. It’s really over and it hurts like nothing you’ve experienced before! Your first break up!
SCENE 4 – NOTHINGS GONNA STOP US NOW , basically acts as reminder of how you wake up one morning and realize that your tears are in vain. You move on and get over that person. You hang out with your friends and party! You meet new people, make new friends, travel. You want to live life to the fullest! There are 4 Acts in each scene in Stories from A Mixtape that highlights the various parts of the first love experience with acting and music.
