A very diverse list casting, they are all from many different ethnic and cultural background who share a love and passion for the performing arts.
Under the direction and leadership of their director, Wang Chaoge, the team performs 2 shows every day. Wang Chaoge serves as the chief director of Encore Melaka. Being a one of the big 3 that founded and pioneered real-scene performances in China called the Impression Series, she has brought the performance to a huge commercial success. There are currently 9 Impression Series in China.
The one that is brought to Melaka is actually the first of the series that is located and performed outside of China. The reason for choosing Melaka as the setting for the first Impression Series outside of China is due to her falling in love with how harmoniously people of many difference cultures are able to coexist with respect and tolerance to the cultural differences that they have.
