Some are from Law Department, there are also ICT people and our company welcomes everyone to be apart of our team in order to make everyone aware the importance of the theatre.”
However, some students complaint regarding the ticket price which they claimed to be too expensive. The program manager, Nurul Dayanna Norji, 23 has something to say on this issue. “We worked really hard in order to make this theatre a success. Although the ticket price is RM5, we still provide the audience many free gifts and sell sweets and snacks as low as RM0.50 each.
