The Royal Selangor Theatre in Shah Alam which was completed in August 2008 has not been open and used yet. The Shah Alam Royal Theatre which stands alongside with the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah state mosque and Grand Bluewave Hotel was left unused. It was quite a pity as it took 30 months since Dec 2004 to built and since completed it has not been fully utilized.
The Royal Selangor Theatre was built at RM43 mil with RM5.8 million spend on the theatre equipment. It has an orchestra pit and a large back screen with rear projector. With stage lighting and sound reinforcement by Electro Voice it will be able to play by large plays and even international shows. The Royal Theatre can accommodate 800 sealers and can held performance for stage show and orchestra performances.
Recently there was plan to restore the theatre to fully operation by next year. It was great to hear that finally they are serious in using the theatre and not leave it as white elephant.
