It’s a well-known fact that theatre brings stories to life but how can this art make a difference in the lives of under-privileged children? Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) has recently launched two community initiatives that help children bring their stories to life, cope with loss, support and educate the volunteers who work with them and give them and their caregivers the opportunity to enjoy the magic of live performance.
In an ever-increasing world of fake news, tax evasion and corporate misconduct, it has never been more important for organisations to adhere to the highest standards of transparency for all the partners they connect with.
As a leading charity in Singapore, SRT strives hard in its governance efforts to drive transparency in all its work and is delighted to announce that it has once again been awarded the coveted Charity Transparency Award (hyperlink this) for the 2nd year in a row.
For over 10 years, Singapore Repertory Theatre has staged 9 of Asia's largest Shakespeare in the Park productions, enthralling some 250,000 people at the magical atmosphere created at Fort Canning Park. But it’s an expensive business staging theatre productions in Singapore and a constant struggle in a world of decreased government funding and corporate sponsorship. Add to that rising production costs and stagnant ticket prices and it soon becomes apparent why companies such as Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) are looking for additional ways to raise much-needed funds.
