The show this time is based on Fairy Tales. However, there will be a twists on how the tales would be told, in a Hi-5 style. For example, some fairy tales like “Sleeping Princess” was renamed as “Princess Sleepy Head”, “Jack and The Beanstalk” was renamed as “Jup Jup and the Beanstalk” and many more.

The press conference was also graced by Tony Nagamaiah, General Manager of MME. Tony said, “We are always at the forefront of bringing to Malaysia international events that celebrate family and attract international audiences, evident from our credentials and portfolio of events. These events have put Malaysia firmly on the world map and brought in international audiences from the neighbouring countries both, young and old. Our array of events has also given us the opportunity to showcase Malaysia as a preferred destination offering quality hospitality, value-for-money experiences and rich culture. It is also our aim to promote Malaysia as a leading country for Lifestyle and Entertainment.”

Apart from that, Julie Greene, the executive producer and creative director for Hi-5 based in Sydney, Australia has also attended the press conference. She co-wrote the show with Catherine Martin. Julie Greene mentioned during the press conference, “I am really excited to share this show with our wonderful fans in Kuala Lumpur. We have, and always had, amazing audiences in Malaysia and I can’t wait to delight them all over again when we bring Hi-5 Fairytale to the stage at Istana Budaya. It is a brilliantly fun show and everyone is guaranteed to leave with a big smile on their face and song in their heart! It’s a show the whole family will love.”

During the press conference, Julie Greene also introduced to us the two new casts as well as hinting the show will be consisting of characters like dragon and pirates. In addition, they also provided us a sneak peak as the casts came out and gave the real life taste of their performance to the media members of the floor.

It was a lovely afternoon with a relaxing and fun performance by the Hi-5 Casts. Their lively performance was really a delight for all of us.

Q&A Sessions!
During the press conference, Julie was asked regarding her inspiration for creating Hi-5. She replied that she was inspired by cartoons she used to watch and she hopes to create a show which can make it funny for the audiences as a family event. She hopes to let the parents have a good time and share a great memory with their children.

With the current infusion of new male talents, a new dynamics was created. There will be a lot of new elements and new surprises in the upcoming shows.

Regarding the selection of new casts, they were picked after a series of auditions, a lot of camera works and different singings. And the female casts actually played a role in picking the new male casts.

As from the girls, they mentioned that the male casts were of their choices because of their personalities. Dayen jokingly said that another one of the criteria is that they love to eat too!

That’s all from us regarding the press conference. I am sure “Hi-5 Fairytale” is going to be a fun-filled family adventure with the usual signatures Hi-5 fun with bubbles, bouncy balls, fantastic projection and lighting effects. Last but not least, groove and sing along to favourite Hi-5 songs such as L.O.V.E, Pretending Day and of course Living in a Fairytale.
