‘The Smurfs Live On Stage – The Smurfs Save Spring’ is a musical theatre production that has been touring around the world since 2014, entertaining as many as 150,000 fans in 15 countries. This showcase with an original story is now in Malaysia, performing at Resorts World Genting’s Genting International Showroom, where 28 shows over a month are scheduled.
What makes this Malaysian stop all the more special is that 2018 is the Smurf’s 60th anniversary. These adorable blue creatures of the forest were created by Belgian cartoonist Pierre Culliford (Peyo) in 1958.
As someone who grew up with the Smurfs and had collected sticker books of them, I was definitely excited to be one of the first Malaysian fans to catch ‘The Smurfs Save Spring’, which features eight of the best-known Smurfs, including Papa Smurf, Clumsy, Brainy, Vanity, Grouchy, Brainy and Smurfette.
‘The Smurfs Live On Stage – The Smurfs Save Spring’ is a 70-minute, two-act musical extravaganza. It is a must-watch for all Smurf fans as it features live actors singing and dancing in full Smurf costumes.
The story begins with the first day of spring, a new season of fresh hopes and dreams. It is the Smurfs’ favourite season of the year. As the village prepares for the much-awaited Spring Parade, the evil genius Gargamel cooks up a wicked plan to disrupt the festivities. What does he do? Is he successful? What happens to the Smurfs and their village?
Aha, you have to watch the show yourself at Resorts World Genting! It is performed daily at the 1,000-capacity Genting International Showroom from now until 24th June 2018, at 8.30pm Mondays to Saturdays and at 4pm on Sundays. Additional 4pm matinees are scheduled for June 15 and 16.
