SHAH ALAM, Aug 1 — The Shah Alam Royale Theatre will be upgraded in the second quarter of next year with a total allocation of RM12 million.
State executive councillor for culture Borhan Aman Shah said the upgrade works involve the building’s acoustic system as well as the replacement of chairs and carpets.
“We also plan to build an amphitheatre outside the building, aside from fixing damages on the building’s exterior to make it look more lively.
“Among programmes that would be performed there include cultural show, theatre performance, concert and television programme,” he said at the winding-up session on the First Selangor Plan (RS-1) bill during the Selangor State Legislative Assembly here today.
Borhan added that the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) has conducted minor maintenance works on the air-conditioning system as well as repair to the toilet and roof involving a cost of RM40,000.
“MBSA also provided the operational costs that include utilities, security and cleaning services amounting to RM21,000 per month.
“This is to accommodate the programmes that have been booked and extended until next September,” he said, adding that the theatre was handed over to MBSA in May last year.
