Now in its 28th year, SRT proudly flies the Singapore flag as one of the region’s leading theatre producers. The company’s repertoire includes critically acclaimed plays like Art and Disgraced, as well as original Singaporean musicals such as Forbidden City. SRT is also well-known for its Shakespeare in the Park series and is one of Singapore’s biggest producers of children’s shows. SRT was the first Singaporean theatre company on Broadway as Associate Producer on Golden Child. International presentations include RSC’s King Lear starring Sir Ian McKellen, Sam Mendes’ three-year The Bridge Project, and National Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
We believe that theatre has the power to engage and transform communities. In addition to our work on-stage, SRT’s Learning & Engagement program is committed to bringing meaningful and relevant programs to students, teachers and emerging theatre talents. We collaborate with leading artists and educators in Singapore and around the world to provide inquiry based and experiential learning for young people, skill development in drama as pedagogy for educators, and mentorship for emerging talents.
This is a unique opportunity to join us as our new Head of Development. This highly rewarding role comes at a pivotal time for the arts in Singapore. The Head of Development will design and drive a robust and sustainable fundraising strategy to support SRT’s vision. Working closely with the Managing Director and Artistic Director, the Head of Development will cultivate and further develop relationships with current and future donors and corporate partners in order maximise philanthropic support for SRT. We are looking for someone who is passionate about the arts and who is motivated to help SRT fulfil its mission to enrich, engage and entertain people of all ages.
