The Malaysian Chinese Performing Artists (MCPA) Alliance is organizing the show to raise funds for upgrading the MCPA Theater. Located at the Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall, the MCPA Theatre is non-profit driven and lacks certain facilities and equipment.

However, a group of artistes and enthusiasts in the dance community has come together with the aim of raising sufficient funds to install a sprung wooden floor and equip the theatre with sufficient lighting.

Those who wish to make further donations are also kindly requested to contact either Choo Tee Kuang (012-2024303) or Woon Fook Sen (012-2842389).
