Singapore Repertory Theatre's (SRT) goal is to provide a platform for Asian artists both on and off stage and to give Singaporeans and visitors the opportunity to experience Broadway, the West End and the richness of Singaporean culture.
SRT has established itself as one of Asia's leading English-language theatres. In addition to its repertoire of original work, the company has produced a number of highly popular 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, Art, The Pillowman, Blackbird, Avenue Q and many others.
SRT has worked with well-known international stars such as Lea Salonga and Ming-Na Wen as well as some of the world's most sought-after directors, award-winning technical, stage, sound, lighting and costume designers. Their skill and talent have provided invaluable learning opportunities for local practitioners.
SRT was honoured to have staged the first musical, Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress as part of the opening festival of Esplanade, Theatres on the Bay in 2002. SRT was the first and only Asian stop on the RSC's world tour of King Lear and The Seagull, directed by Sir Trevor Nunn and starring Sir Ian McKellen in 2007.
SRT presented and and co-commissioned Sam Mendes' The Bridge Project - The Winter's Tale in 2009 where Singapore was the first and only Asian stop and starring Ethan Hawke. In 2010, The Bridge Project tour staged The Tempest. In 2011, it will be Richard III starring Kevin Spacey.
SRT also produces the Shakespeare in the Park series at Fort Canning Park. SRT has staged Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth and recently in April 2012, Twelfth Night.
SRT hopes that the opportunity to work with the best practitioners in the world will add a new dimension of professionalism to the local theatre industry.
