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 mission is to enrich, engage and entertain audiences by staging theatrical productions and learning programmes of the highest calibre, collaborating with the best talent in the world. Vision is to inspire, engage and entertain audiences of all ages.
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.

KC ARTS CENTRE – HOME OF SRT
Electricity: In 2020, we have shifted to a carbon-neutral electricity supplier. We are constantly seeking to reduce our electricity consumption at the venue by changing how and when we work.
Plastic: We are limiting the use of plastic from our bar and productions and striving to eliminate single-use plastic in the bar.
Paper and other materials: Our goal is to only have e-tickets by 2021 and to eliminate printed tickets entirely. We will print marketing materials only on recycled paper or FSC approved suppliers and promote the use of electronic versions of our show collaterals like flyers and programmes.
We are learning from creative and other industries in Singapore and abroad on how we can best reduce the environmental impact of our productions. We do our best to work with local suppliers and we engage our suppliers to find environmentally friendly solutions and to ultimately build sets from sustainable and recycled materials.
We will partner with organisations, who can help SRT and our patrons offset our carbon footprint in innovative and impactful ways.
