Founded in 1993, Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) is one of the leading English language theatre producers and presenters in Asia. In addition to its repertoire of original musicals like Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress, the company has produced a number of critically acclaimed plays that include ART, The Pillowman and God of Carnage. SRT was the first Singaporean theatre company on Broadway in 1998 as Associate Producer of Golden Child, which went from Singapore to New York and earned three Tony Award nominations.
SRT’s international collaborations include Royal Shakespeare Company’s King Lear and The Seagull starring Sir Ian McKellen, Oscar-winning Sam Mendes The Bridge Project (2009-2011) as well as 3 Titans of Theatre – a season of works directed by Simon McBurney, Yukio Ninagawa and Peter Brook. SRT co-commissioned Peter Brook’s Battlefield in 2015.
SRT produces the very successful Shakespeare in the Park season and is also one of the biggest producers of children’s theatre in Southeast Asia with shows like The Cat in the Hat, The Ugly Duckling and The Three Little Pigs.
SRT is also very active in the local community with a Learning & Engagement programme that benefits thousands of students, teachers and children and which underpins a substantial investment in audience and talent development for the wider industry in Singapore.
SRT is supported by the National Arts Council under the Major Company Scheme for the period of April 2017 to March 2020.
