Theatre

Esplanade Theatre, Singapore

Be amazed by the range of theatrical activities Singapore offers. From world classics, broadway hits, local creations to experimental plays, Singapore has them all.

Not only can you catch local adaptations of well loved classics such as George Orwell's Animal Farm, and Marc Camelotti's Boeing Boeing, you can also watch plays by local writers such as the hugely successful Emily of Emerald hill, a play full of Peranakan flavour, and Chang & Eng - The Musical.

Often enough, one can also catch Broadway hits in Singapore, produced and played by Singaporean theatre companies. The Singapore Repertory Theatre for instance, has staged several award winning plays from West End such as HONK! and Art. Proof, a multiple award winning play on Broadway, was staged here by Action Theatre. It just shows you don't have to be in Broadway to catch world class hits!

There are not just English-language theatres in Singapore, but also Chinese language theatre groups such as Toy Factory Theatre Ensemble which produces international classics in Mandarin, as well as Malay and Tamil language theatre groups. Catch a play whilst you are in Singapore!
