Local Arts Centres; > Singapore Repertory Theatre
The DBS Arts Centre where the SRT resides permanently.
The Singapore Repertory Theatre’s (SRT) goal is to provide a platform for Asian artists and to allow Singaporeans and visitors to experience Broadway, the West End and the richness of Singaporean culture.
The SRT is reputed to be one of Asia’s leading English-language theatres. Besides its repertoire of original work, the company has also produced some well-liked and critically acclaimed productions of western classics starring Asian performers. These include The Glass Menagerie, Nora, Death of a Salesman, Hamlet, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Little Shop of Horrors and Art.
The SRT also had the honour of staging the first musical Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress during the opening festival of Esplanade, Theatres on the Bay in 2002.
Other than that, the SRT has worked alongside famous international stars such as Lea Salonga and Ming-Na Wen as well as some of the world’s most sought directors and award-winning technical, stage, sound, lighting and costume designers. Their talents have provided local artists with invaluable learning experiences and the SRT hopes that the opportunities offered to the local artists to work with the best in the world will add a new touch of professionalism to the industry in Singapore.
