LIVE SHOW: Bugs Bunny and gang promise an entertaining time.

KUCHING: The Looney Tunes cartoon characters are set to take over Stadium Perpaduan tonight as their live musical show premieres here.

The world-class show produced by Warner Brothers, USA will begin at 7pm.

“We are very excited to be finally here for the first time and show to the people here what the Looney Tunes have to offer. The show will begin and end with amazing special effects,” producer John Read told a press conference yesterday.

“It takes eight to 12 months of planning and preparation to make this happen. The most amazing part is that everything is done in Kuching like all the designs for stage and layout, backdrop, lighting, we don’t have to bring anything except Bugs Bunny’s luggage.”

Read said the Looney Tunes have delighted audiences for 65 years and have become entertainment icons worldwide.

As such, he said the show is suitable for all ages.

He said the crew have been all around the world for the show including Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

“It feels wonderful to be in a different part of Malaysia because we usually hear a lot of the happenings and big events are taking place in Kuala Lumpur. I believe with this world-class show being brought to Kuching, it is good tourism entertainment for Sarawak,” he added.

Organiser EduCore Paradise Sdn Bhd has invited about 500 children from charitable homes to watch the show tomorrow (Nov 22) at 3pm.

The show times tomorrow are 2.30pm and 7pm, while on Saturday they are 11am, 2.30pm and 7pm.

Sunday’s show times are 11am and 2.30pm.

Show-goers can expect to laugh at the hilarious antics and dance along to the catchy tunes in this witty musical that has played to more than 100,000 over four weeks in Australia.

‘Looney Tunes Classroom Capers’ will see Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Sylvester, Tasmanian Taz and Marvin the Martian at the Acme Academy.

The teacher is running late for class so the Looney Tunes decide to take turns as the substitute teacher.

As Daffy Duck is trying to get most of the control and teach mostly about himself, the rest have to try and put a stop to that.
